CLIMATE VARIABILITY AND HUMAN ACTIVITIES IN RELATION TO
NORTHEAST ASIAN LAND-OCEAN INTERACTIONS AND THEIR IMPLICATIONS FOR
COASTAL ZONE MANAGEMENT

Principal Investigator:
Andrey V. Adrianov
Institute of Marine Biology, Far East Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences

Main Objectives of the Project:

  • to identify 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
  • to evaluate the sensitivity of regional changes in relation to anthropogenic processes and climate change
  • to provide recommendations to management of sustainable coastal development of the region and to provide assistance to policy/decision makers.
