Boiling Down the Alphabet Soup of Coastal System Health into a Single White Paper | Shorewords!
FIBs, HABs, SAV, MP, OA, NNBFs and More!
On this episode of Shorewords!, join host Lesley Ewing in conversation with Nicole Elko and Julie Kinzelman, two of the 21 authors of the newly released ASBPA White Paper on Human and ecosystem health in coastal systems (http://doi.org/10.34237/1009018). The White Paper covers FIBs, HABs, SAV, MP, OA, NNBFs and other topics of the alphabet soup of coastal system health. This paper condenses our current understanding of nearshore process interactions with coastal pollutants and ecosystems, the resilience of some key coastal ecosystems and provides recommendations for the research, engagement and policies needed to help coastal managers respond to the broad range of human and ecosystem threats.
