REPORT ON THE ACTIVITY IN 2003

APN Project Climate Variability and Human Activities in Relation to Northeast Asian Land-Ocean Interactions and their Implications for Coastal Zone Management supported by Seed Grant included two major activities: the workshop held in the Institute of Marine Biology FEB RAS, Vladivostok, and field excursion to the mouth area of Razdolnaya River in the Russian Far East (August 9-11, 2003). A total of 20 persons from China, Korea and Russia, and a representative of APN attended the meeting. Detailed discussion recognized main objectives of improved project submitted to APN under the title Northeast Asian riverocean interactions and their implications for coastal zone management: identification of estuarine and coastal changes in terms of hydrology, hydrochemistry, geochemistry, geomorphology, ecosystem and material cycling patterns of the northeastern Asia region, with special reference to the Amur, Tumen and Razdolnaya Rivers; evaluation of the sensitivity of regional changes in relation to anthropogenic processes and climate change; providing of the recommendations to management of sustainable coastal development of the region and to provide assistance to policy/decision makers. The main outcome of the meeting was improvement of the project and development of the linkages between Chinese, Korean and Russian scientists and initial data exchange.
