The Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation

The Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation
(formerly The Estuarine Research Federation)

New Content Item

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.

A free service from the CERF - subscribers receive 6 messages per year from CESN. Each message contains 4 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.
