The session aims at fostering our understanding of the roles of coastal environments and of exchange processes along the terrestrial / coastal sea / open ocean continuum in global biogeochemical cycles. During the session recent advancements in the field of coastal and shelf biogeochemistry will be discussed. Contributions focusing on carbon and nutrient and all other element's cycles in coastal, shelf and shelf break environments are invited.

This session is co-sponsored by CARBOOCEAN, an EU-FP6 Integrated Project and by the IGBP/IHDP coreproject LOICZ.
