The 7th International Conference
on Estuaries and Coasts: Anthropocene Coasts
河口海岸国际研讨会（International Conference on Estuaries and Coasts，简称ICEC）是国际泥沙研究培训中心发起并主办的系列学术会议，每三年一届，自2003年起，已经在中国杭州和广州、日本仙台、越南河内、阿曼马斯喀特和法国卡昂成功举办六届，国际影响日益扩大。第七届河口海岸国际研讨会：人类驱动的河口海岸带可持续发展 将于 2021年10月18至21日 在中国上海举行。会议由国际泥沙研究培训中心主办，华东师范大学河口海岸学国家重点实验室承办。
The International Conference on Estuaries and Coasts (ICEC) is a triennial event initiated by the International Research and Training Center on Erosion and Sedimentation (IRTCES). Six such conferences have been held in Hangzhou and Guangzhou, China; Sendai, Japan; Hanoi, Vietnam; Muscat, Oman, and Caen, France in 2003, 2006, 2009, 2012, 2015 and 2018, respectively. With support from different international associations and projects, and with the participation of experts and scholars worldwide, the ICEC has attracted wide attention and has become an important and popular event. The 7th International Conference on Estuaries and Coasts: Anthropocene Coasts will be held in Shanghai during October 18-21, 2021. The conference is hosted by the International Research and Training Center on Erosion and Sedimentation, and organized by the State Key Laboratory of Estuarine and Coastal Research, East China Normal University.

Physics and Biogeochemistry of the East Sea (Japan Sea), Yellow Sea, and East China Sea
for Frontiers in Marine Science
The East Asian Marginal Seas (EAMS) include the East Sea (also known as the Japan Sea, EJS), the Yellow Sea, and the East China Sea. The EJS is a deep (< 3500 m), semi-enclosed sea and is connected to the Pacific through narrow and relatively shallow straits. The EJS is often called a miniature ocean since it is a major anomaly in the ventilation and overturning circulation in the Pacific. The upper EJS is well affected by changes in circulation and biogeochemistry of the neighboring shelf seas, the East China Sea and the Yellow Sea, as a branch of the Kuroshio transports the shelf water into the EJS. During the last century, the water circulation and biogeochemistry of the EAMS have been strongly affected by changes in climate,river water discharge (i.e., the Changjiang River and the Yellow River), groundwater discharge, and air-sea exchanges.
This special issue aims to look into the changes in physics and biogeochemistry of the EAMS lying at the forefront in response to climate change and human footprint.

The 1st International Symposium on Coastal Ecosystems and Global Change Successfully Held
2021年4月16至19日，第一届海岸带生态系统与全球变化国际研讨会成功召开，会议以“海岸带生态系统与全球变化”为主题，设置了6个分会场进行深入交流与讨论，包括：全球变化背景下的滨海湿地生态系统；生物入侵及其对海岸带生态系统服务功能的影响；全球变化与演化适应；海岸带生态系统的长期生态研究；陆基人类活动对海岸带生态系统的影响；海岸带生态系统综合管理。与会专家和研究生分别做了114个口头学术报告与35个成果海报展示，近300位专家学者在线上和现场参会。河口海岸学国家重点实验室(SKLEC)国际化团队(IMBeR • Anthropocene Coasts • FEC)参会并设展，同与会专家进行了深入交流。
The 1st International Symposium on Coastal Ecosystems and Global Change was successfully launched on April 16-19, 2021. With the theme of "Coastal Ecosystem and Global Change", six concurrent sessions were organized for in-depth academic exchanges, including Coastal Wetland Ecosystems under Climatic Change, Coastal Alien species, Invasion, and its Impacts on Coastal Ecosystem Services, Global Change and Evolutionary Adaptation, Long Term Ecological Research for Coastal Ecosystems, Land-based Human Activity and Sustainable Coastal Development, Integrated Coastal Ecosystem Management. The symposium was conducted simultaneously online and on-site with nearly 300 attendees. 114 oral presentations and 35 posters were presented by experts and graduate students respectively. Internationalization Team (IMBeR • Anthropocene Coasts • FEC) of State Key Laboratory of Estuarine and Coastal Research (SKLEC) attended the symposium and set up a booth, having in-depth exchanges with the participating experts.
