Scientists, environmental campaigners and policy makers will attempt to define and visualize the seascape of the Tay and Forth estuaries at a conference at the University of Dundee later this month.
The 19th annual Tay Estuary Forum conference, taking place at West Park Conference Center on Friday, 22nd April, will see delegates discuss current issues affecting the estuary and surrounding coast.
Professor Rob Duck, TEF Chair, said: “This year’s speakers will spark lively debate surrounding a wide range of current coastal, marine and environmental topics, with an east of Scotland focus.”
“We have put together a packed program and presentations will range from the national scale to local-specific initiatives, all of which aim towards sustainable management of our coasts and seas ensuring a productive future.”
This year’s event will see researchers, representatives of local authorities, and other stakeholders deliver presentations on topics including biodiversity, offshore renewables, coastal erosion, winter storms, marine tourism and recreation and Scotland’s changing coast.
The Tay Estuary Forum regularly communicates with coastal stakeholders, user groups and the general public on a variety of coastal and marine current issues.
