Estuaries and Coasts is the journal of the Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation. Begun in 1977 as Chesapeake Science, the journal has gradually expanded its scope and circulation. Today, the journal publishes manuscripts on ecosystems at the interface between the land and the sea, covering aspects of research on physical, chemical, geological or biological systems, as well as applications to management of those ecosystems. The interface is broadly defined to include estuaries and nearshore coastal waters including lagoons, wetlands, tidal rivers, shorelands, and beaches. The journal publishes original research findings, reviews and perspectives, techniques, comments, and management applications. Submissions that are primarily descriptive, strongly place-based, or report on development of models or new methods without detailing their applications fall outside the scope of the journal.
