The Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation

(formerly The Estuarine Research Federation)

Costal and Estuarine Research Federation
The similarity and diversity of estuaries is also characteristic of the Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation, a multidisciplinary organization of individuals who study and manage the structure and functions of estuaries and the effects of human activities on these fragile environments.
These environments and to making the results of their research and management actions available to their colleagues and to the public. Members of the Federation include academic researchers, public sector managers, teachers, consultants, students and others who are interested in estuaries.
The Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation is a private, nonprofit non partisan organization. The Federation was created in 1971, when the members of two older, regionally-based estuarine research societies (AERS and NEERS) decided that a national organization was needed to address estuarine and coastal issues more broadly. The regionally based Affiliate Societies now number seven and encompass all of the coastal regions that border the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Subscribe to the Coastal and Estuarine Science News (CESN) 

A free service from the CERF - subscribers receive 4 messages per year from CESN. Each message contains 6 summaries of recent articles from the Federation's journal, Estuaries and Coasts.
The summaries are written in layman's terms and highlight application of the research to current management topics. At the end of the first year of CESN subscribers will be asked to complete a short survey that is intended to help the Federation improve the service.

    Estuaries and Coasts is the journal of the Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation. It publishes original research on the hydrodynamics, hydrology, (geo)chemistry, geology, biology and their interactions in marine waters influenced by connectivity to land. The journal's geographic scope includes coastal watersheds, tidal rivers, estuaries, lagoons, inland seas, wetlands, and near-shore coastal waters from polar to equatorial latitudes. The Editors encourage submissions that present novel approaches, findings or concepts of general interest to better understand the functioning and structure of coastal systems and will interest the journal's increasingly international readership. 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.

    Manuscripts will be judged on the basis of their contribution of original data, ideas and interpretation. Only material intended for publication in Estuaries and Coasts will be considered. Manuscripts must be written in English but may have an abstract in an alternate language when appropriate. Manuscripts will be reviewed by a member of the Editorial Board and by at least two anonymous reviewers.
