LOICZ Workshop Products

A series of Workshops are being held as part of the LOICZ/UNEP-GEF project, to develop coastal zone classifications for upscaling biogeochemical function. Participants at the workshop have produced a variety of typology and classification products, using LOICZVIEW and the Envirodatabase:
Brisbane Workshop Products (Asia-Australia Synthesis, Jan 2001)
Ensenada Workshop Products (Americas Synthesis, May 2001)
The Hague Workshop Products (Africa-Europe Synthesis, July 2001
Kansas Workshop Preliminary Products (Global Synthesis, Nov. 2001)
Final Regional Workshops Report (Regional Workshops, 2002)
