Compendium for Coast and Sea

The Compendium for Coast and Sea is an integrated document about the socio-economic, environmental and institutional aspects of the coast and the sea in Flanders and Belgium.

In collaboration with a network of experts, Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ) developed this intiative which aims to aggregate objective and scientifically-underpinned up to date information and data from Flemish/Belgian marine and maritime research. The first version of this knowledge document was published in 2013, a second version in 2015. A new edition is due in December 2018 and will feature new products and content.The integrated and multidisciplinary character of the Compendium aims to increase the communication within the broad network of marine scientists and experts (from industry, policy, etc.) who are professionally involved with the coast and the sea. Furthermore, it increases the visibility and accessibility of marine research.

The following publications are disclosed in an interactive way on the Compendium website and can be downloaded below:
