Abstract
    Estuaries and coastal zones constitute main pathways from continents to oceans. Various biogeochemical processes may affect the behaviour and the fluxes of components between the two systems. These processes may also influence interactions between the ocean and the atmosphere by emission or uptake of gaseous products. A particular effort has been devoted in Belgium to studies concerning the cycle of carbon, nutrients and trace elements, mainly in the Scheldt estuary, the Southern Bight of the North Sea, and in the Mediterranean Sea along the Corsican coast. These cycles have been drastically affected by man's activities. A few examples are given to illustrate these studies.
