NCK-WA Wadden Day
The Netherlands Centre for Coastal Research (NCK), the Waddenacademie and Rijkswaterstaat will organise the second NCK-theme day about the Wadden. Central theme is the interaction between biotic and abiotic factors in the Wadden sea. The format of the theme 'day' will be an online meeting in the morning of Tuesday 18th of May, from 9.00 - 12.15h.
The aim of this theme day is to deepen the knowledge of the interaction between some key biotic and abiotic factors in the Dutch Wadden Sea. The target audience for this theme day are scientists and specialists.
The program consists of three sessions, that each start with a general introduction of 15 min and is followed by three shorter presentations of 5 min and closed with a discussion.
