International symposium on coastal ecosystem change in Asia: hypoxia, eutrophication, and nutrient conditions is going to be held on Nov 14-15, 2019
International symposium on coastal ecosystem change in Asia: hypoxia, eutrophication, and nutrient conditions is going to be held as follows.
Date: November 14-15, 2019
Time: Nov 14 (Thu) 9:30-17:15 / Nov 15 (Fri) 9:00-17:30
Venue: Media Hall, Ehime University, Matsuyama, Japan
(1st floor of Center for Information Technology, Ehime University)
■Organizing Committee: Xinyu GUO, Akihiko MORIMOTO, Michinobu KUWAE, Naoki YOSHIE
(Center for Marine Environmental Studies, Ehime University)
■Purpose: With increasing of nutrient load into coastal water, some environmental issues have been reported to occur in many bays and shelf seas in Asia. For example, hypoxia water has been observed in the Bohai Sea, East China Sea, Thailand Bay, and Jakarta Bay in recent 10 years. On the other hand, the hypoxia water has been reported in many bays and inland seas in Japan for more than 30 years. The reduction of nutrient load into coastal water in Japan has been continued for many years but the hypoxia water is still observed now. Apparently, the occurrence of hypoxia water is not a simple problem related only to nutrients load into the coastal water. The eutrophication and nutrient condition outside the coastal water should also affect the occurrence of hypoxia water. This symposium will provide an opportunity to summarize our understanding on the occurrence of hypoxia water and some related issues in the coastal water in Asia.
