What have we been up to

Welcome to join 'FEC Fellows Session: Dynamic Coasts' on 2 March!

We are happy to announce that the next FEC Fellows Session will take place on 2 March at 8-9 am UTC!

This session will be focused on the FEC theme ‘Dynamic Coasts’.

Coastal systems and regional seas are constantly changing as a result of biophysical and socio-economic activities. In this session, we will focus on synthesizing existing understanding of the changing state of coasts in terms of risks and future trends and discuss the following questions:

– What are the trajectories of change to the environment and societies at the coast and how do natural processes and human activities interact?

– What are the limits and thresholds of change to ecosystem function and services?

If you are interested in joining this session, please feel free to contact for more information.

Prof. Alice Newton published the editorial article in Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution on the research topic ‘Ecosystem Services, Biodiversity and Water Quality in Transitional Ecosystems’

Transitional ecosystems (estuaries, lagoons, coastal lakes) are complex human–environmental systems where environmental, economic and social issues call for new integrated management perspectives. Anthropogenic impacts and the need for systematic conservation planning have further motivated the analysis of patterns and processes at regional scales.


The research topic ‘Ecosystem Services, Biodiversity and Water Quality in Transitional Ecosystems’ sets the stage for significant advances in all aspects of transitional ecosystems ecology. It includes manuscripts on the following themes

1. Transitional ecosystems evolution, Functioning & Climatic changes

2. Biodiversity & Water quality

3. Fisheries and Aquaculture

4. Goods and services, Conservation, Management & Sustainable use


The editors summarized that transitional ecosystems provide a range of valuable goods and services, and the management and conservation of these systems should consider the full range of these values. It was advised that future research may focus on improving our understanding of the impacts of human activities, climate change and economy on these systems, as well as developing and testing new management and conservation approaches. It will also be important to continue to engage with stakeholders and decision-makers to ensure that the needs and values of all interested parties are considered in the management of transitional ecosystems.

Frontiers in Marine Science e-book ‘Consequences of global change in coastal ecosystems from a multidisciplinary perspective’ released

A Frontiers in Marine Science e-book, comprising all the articles featured in the Research Topic ‘Consequences of global change in coastal ecosystems from a multidisciplinary perspective’, has been compiled and is now available online on the website since January 2023. This special issue emphasises the need to address multi-scale problems with multidisciplinary perspectives in which key physical and environmental issues are highlighted: Biomass loss, Coastal protection, and Future scenarios. 

The paper entitled ‘Hindcasting Ecosystem Functioning Change in an Anthropogenized Estuary: Implications for an Era of Global Change’, authored by Dr. Xiaoyu Fang, the executive director of FEC also director of IPO China, was included in this special issue.


Understanding how altered hydrodynamics related to climate change and anthropogenic modifications affect ecosystem integrity of shallow coastal soft-sediment environments requires a sound integration of how species populations influence ecosystem functioning across heterogeneous spatial scales. Here, we hindcasted how intertidal habitat loss and altered hydrodynamic regimes between 1955 and 2010 associated with geomorphological change to accommodate expansion in anthropogenic activities in the Western Scheldt altered spatial patterns and basin-wide estimates of ecosystem functioning. 

To this end we combined an empirically derived metabolic model for the effect of the common ragworm Hediste diversicolor on sediment biogeochemistry (measured as sediment oxygen uptake) with a hydrodynamic and population biomass distribution model. Our integrative modeling approach predicted an overall decrease by 304 tons in ragworm biomass between 1955 and 2010, accounting for a reduction by 28% in stimulated sediment oxygen uptake at the landscape scale. Local gains or losses in habitat suitability and ecosystem functioning were primarily driven by changes in maximal current velocities and inundation regimes resulting from deepening, dredging and disposal practices. By looking into the past, we have demonstrated how hydro- and morphodynamic changes affect soft-sediment ecology and highlight the applicability of the integrative framework to upscale anticipated population effects on ecosystem functioning.

About ECNU and SKLEC

On October 16, 1951, East China Normal University (ECNU) was founded based on the Great China University (1924) and Kwang Hua University (1925), while incorporating some other departments from St. John’s University, etc. Funded by the state, administered by the Ministry of Education, and jointly supervised by the Ministry of Education and the Shanghai Municipal Government, ECNU isa comprehensive research university in China sponsored by the national top university programs “Project 211” and “Project 985”. In 2017, ECNU was one of the 36 Class A universities on the list of Double First-Class University Plan released by the central government of China, embarking on a new journey towards a world-class university with its roots in China. With two beautiful campuses located in Minhang and Putuo districts of Shanghai, ECNU has long been known as one of the most beautiful campuses in China.

The State Key Laboratory of Estuarine and Coastal Research (SKLEC) originated from the Estuarine and Coastal Research Institute, which was founded in 1957 and the first institute of estuaries and coasts research in China. The laboratory is mainly engaged in the both foundamental and applied research of estuarine and coastal areas, with the following research directions: Estuarine and coastal morphodynamics and land resource safety, Estuarine and coastal multi-interface ecological processes and its environmental impact, Estuarine and coastal hazard and resilience, and Human-earth coupling system and its sustainable development. In its 60 years of development, estuarine and coastal scientists have persistently carried out frontier research, focusing on practical problems in resource development and ecological protection in estuarine and coastal areas, and made a series of major innovative contributions to the sustainable social and economic development of coastal areas. While serving for the national developments, SKLEC has effectively developed science of the earth system, and promoted international academic influence in the field of estuarine and coastal research.

FEC Dialogue with women scientists:

Celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science!

The following are excerpts from the interview:

Dr. Sarah Kandrot

Sarah Kandrot is a geoscientist specializing in the application of geoinformatics tools and technologies to coastal, marine, and environmental projects. She holds a PhD in Geography from University College Cork, where she previously worked as a lecturer and postdoctoral researcher. She is currently Head of Aerial Surveys at Green Rebel, an Irish company specializing in site investigations for offshore renewable energy (ORE) projects. Sarah oversees Green Rebel’s aerial survey division, which performs digital aerial marine ecology surveys and analyses to support consent applications for ORE projects.

Q: How to achieve work-life balance?

A: I start work early in the morning - I’m in the office by 7am. I am then able to finish work early in the afternoon and enjoy the rest of my day. I also get 2 solid hours of almost guaranteed disturbance free time in the morning to work on things that require my full attention. I am most awake and alert in the morning, so I get my best work done then anyway. I love getting off work in the afternoon rather than at 5 or 6 pm, because, in Ireland at least, it’s still light out in the winter so it feels nice to see a bit of daylight when I get off work and I think is generally good for my mental health. A small shift in the start and end of my work day has really improved my work life balance and even made me more productive. I think there’s really something to the cliche phrase “work smarter, not harder”.

After this interview, we learned about difficulties faced by female scientists, their countermeasures, and the methods for female scientists to achieve work-life balance. It is inevitable to encounter problems and challenges in scientific research. As women, they did not give up lightly, but worked hard, actively responded, and finally achieved extraordinary achievements. We believe that with their experience, more young women will join in scientific research, and their encouragement will surely pass on the spirit of female scientists.

Dr. Carmen Elrick-Barr

Carmen Elrick-Barr is a human geographer with over 15 years experience working in the academic and private sectors. She currently holds two research fellow positions relating to coastal governance (University of the Sunshine Coast, QLD) and coastal and marine resource management (University of Western Australia, WA). Carmen has worked for international development agencies (e.g. AusAID, USAid) and national and municipal governments in the Pacific, South-east Asia, Australia and Europe on coastal climate change issues. She is the state rep for Western Australian branch of the Australian Coastal Society.

Q: What inspired you to pursue a career in scientific research?

A: I believe my passion for scientific research has evolved from a general curiosity in ‘how things work’ and in particular ‘how decisions are made’. I have always had a close connection to the coast, and following honours research I was fortunate to work with a leading coastal practitioner on climate risk in the Pacific. Working with local communities and the global organisations that sought to support them shed insight into the challenges of coastal governance and led me to undertake PhD research on how individuals and communities respond to change. As a researcher I have the privilege of sharing people’s stories, their challenges and successes, and seek to do this in a way that supports improved coastal governance. 

Ms. Lena Rölfer

Lena Rölfer is a PhD candidate at the Faculty of Sustainability at Leuphana University and at the Climate Service Center Germany (GERICS). In her PhD, she focuses on the contributions of governance, local actors and information services to the resilience of coastal systems to climate change. She holds a B.Sc. in Environmental Sciences and a M.Sc. in Aquatic Tropical Ecology. Lena has a strong interest in the role and opportunities of early career researchers within transdisciplinary coastal research and at the science-policy-practice interface.

Q: Have you ever been anxious? What are the sources of anxiety? How do you relieve anxiety?

A: Yes, I have been feeling anxious about my contributions to science and the quality of my research. While I don’t think that this is specific to women or girls in science, academia is still a male dominated field, and female researchers often feel like they have to perform even higher than their male colleagues, which puts a lot of pressure on them. Another source of anxiety are short-term contracts. Not knowing what comes next can create great uncertainty about the future career prospects - both for male and female researchers.

One way of relieving this anxiety for me is to speak about it openly with my supervisors and peers. As mental health is becoming a topic that is being more openly discussed, I think it is important to point out the issues in academia that make people feel anxious or overwhelmed. Another way to relieve anxiety is learning to say “no” to tasks and possibilities. While we often take on as many tasks as possible to show that we are capable of meeting the demands, we often forget to pay attention to our mental capacities. Learning to say “no” helped me to set and communicate my own boundaries, as well as to prioritise the tasks that support my own career development.

Dr. Eirini Politi

Eirini Politi works in an environmental consultancy in research and development (R&D) projects mainly funded by the European Commission (EC) and the European Space Agency (ESA). Her field of expertise is in water quality remote sensing and ecosystem applications using EO and GIS tools, and she is now involved with upstream and downstream product and services development, project management and communications. She has worked in the academic sector (Greece and UK), a national research centre of expertise (Ireland) and the private sector (Switzerland and Germany).

Q: What gender stereotypes, biases, and structural barriers do you think need to be broken down?

A: I think the following should change:

1. Unfair and/or insulting behaviours expressed by persons who consider themselves superior to others for any reason, and those who believe to be entitled to something others are not, must change.

2. Inclusive behaviours must be practised by all, while exclusive, sexist, chauvinistic and/or misogynistic behaviours must be noticed and not tolerated. Everyone, male or female, has a responsibility to treat all others with respect.

3. More flexible scheduling patterns are required to suit persons who have any reason (e.g., women with young children) to not be able to study or work within the usual 9-5pm timeframe.

4. There should be no gender bias when selecting candidates for positions, whether these are young or older individuals.

5. Both men and women should be equally encouraged to pursue, and be entitled to, equal amounts of paternity leave (instead of women receiving more and, thus, being expected to be away from study or work for longer).

6. For parents with young children, on-site nurseries and playground facilities can help.

7. Gender stereotypes such as “this is a man’s or a woman’s job” must be overcome.

8. Course curricula and work environments must be fit for both genders and varying abilities/capabilities/skills/needs must be considered when designing the former.

9. Individual skills and talents must be encouraged towards a working population that is diverse and collaborative.

10. Specific cultural, religious or other needs (e.g. changing rooms for women who prefer to change in privacy) must be respected.

11. More inclusive education at school (all ages) to ensure future societies embrace diversity and get rid of prejudices against women.

Ms. Viola van Onselen

Viola van Onselen is a PhD candidate at department of Geography at the National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU) in Taipei, China. She is interested in various management approaches to coastal zone issues around the world and currently studies coastal areas in Vietnam and Taiwan, in terms of how human decisions have affected the natural landscape, biodiversity and vulnerability of these coastal environments and explore how sustainable approaches, like Nature-based Solutions, can increase the resilience of coastal zones.

Q: What skills and qualities does scientific research require?

A: When embarking on a PhD I discovered that a huge part of developing your own project is to first consider what you stand for, what you value and what you like to do next in your career. This really helped finding my own identity through my research work. My research is focussed on hazard risk reduction and sustainable methods to reduce the impacts of climate change. I realised that to me it is very important to have an impact with my research, that extends beyond the scientific community and can contribute to a healthier society and environment.

 Some skills I highly value:

· Commitment and persistence; research projects can have setbacks, take a long time, need a different angle, etc. You need to be committed and take responsibility to get results.

· Critical and analytical skills; you often need to switch quickly, learn new things in a short time span, be critical of errors of yourself and peers, be curious and ask lots of questions.

· Communication skills; since research projects become increasingly inter-and multidisciplinary, communication is a huge factor for the successful outcomes. I have the feeling this skill often seems to be undervalued.

Moreover, I would say a skill any scientist should require is to dare cross boundaries and look beyond your discipline/niche to collaborate and solve issues together with other scientists or stakeholders.

The full text of interview will be released later on our official website! Stay tuned!
