EUTRO 2010

15-18 June 2010, Nyborg, Denmark



The ICES/DHI/NOAA Symposium on Research and Management of Eutrophication in Coastal Ecosystems (EUTRO 2010) will take place 15-18 June 2010 in Nyborg, Denmark. The symposium will focus upon the most recent results and experiences in regard to research and management of coastal eutrophication. Hence, the target audience is a combination of scientists and regulators.

EUTRO 2010 will in particular focus on conceptual understanding of eutrophication, loads and cycling of nutrients, reference conditions, primary and secondary effects, trend reversal (oligotrophication), monitoring, modelling, assessment as well as development of adaptive and knowledge-based nutrient management strategies.
