Enclosed Coastal Seas and Satoumi Network

We, International EMECS Center, offer you our enclosed coastal seas knowledge which has been accumulated since our establishment.


Enclosed coastal seas are vulnerable to water pollution and eutrophication because narrower entrance parts limit seawater exchange compared to inner sea areas.
EMECS Conference Database provides papers and articles presented at EMECS Conferences to solve environmental issues of the enclosed coastal seas in the integrated manner.
"Satoumi" is a coastal area where biological productivity and biodiversity has increased through human interaction. Proceedings and presentation materials from symposiums related Satoumi are available in this page.
