FINAL REPORT SUBMITTED TO APN

In course of the 2-year APN-funded project, new data on estuarine and coastal changes in areas adjoining the Amur, Tumen and Razdolnaya Rivers were obtained, and recommendations for management of sustainable coastal development of the region are presented including China and Korea coastal zones. Two expeditions to Amur and Razdolnaya Rivers mouth areas were organized, and hydrological regime, oceanography, environmental contamination, state of benthic and plankton comminities were investigated in connection with climatic changes. Three workshops were held: in Nanjing, China, Dec. 2004; Training Course for Young Scientists, Vladivostok, Russia, Oct. 2005; back-to-back with a science session for local policy-makers; in Vladivostok, May 2006. A website of the project was created ( http://www.imb.dvo.ru/misc/apn/index.htm), and two books, Ecological Studies and State of the Ecosystem of Amursky Bay and Razdolnaya River Mouth and a collective monograph are in preparation. Two books and 19 papers in peerreviewed journals were published and/or prepared. Future directions may include comparison of different coastal management strategies and understanding of how we can use these national strategies to develop complex management approach.
