Nutrient fluxes in transitional zones of the Italian coast
To achieve these objectives, the LOICZ programme of activities has two major thrusts. The first is the development of horizontal and, to a lesser extent, vertical material flux models and their dynamics from continental basins through regional seas to continental oceanic margins, based on our understanding of biogeochemical processes and data for coastal ecosystems and habitats and the human dimension. The second is the scaling of the material flux models to evaluate coastal changes at spatial scales to global levels and, eventually, across temporal scales.
