Special issue of Regional Environmental Change:
Assessment of the sustainability of complex social-ecological systems at different scales: methods, tools and approaches
The goal of this special issue is to analyse sustainability of complex social-ecological systems (SES) at different scales by using recently available innovative methods, tools and approaches. The special issue will emerge from a 2-day workshop in Kiel (during September 26-27, 2018) involving key interdisciplinary researchers in the field of SES.
Discussions for the workshop as well as for the special issue are expected to include, but not necessarily be limited to, the following topics:
Interested authors are encouraged to submit 1-2 pages of extended abstracts to the following guest editors of Regional Environmental Change via email by July 15, 2018 at the latest.

The European Geoscience Union (EGU) 2018 General Assembly is the largest geosciences meeting in Europe. Thousands of geoscientists from all over the world present new developments in areas, such as climate, space and planetary science missions, natural disasters, and seafloor exploration. The 2018 General Assembly took place at the Austria Center Vienna (ACV). Our group leader, Prof. Anthanasios Vafeidis, and our doctoral researchers, Lena Reimann and Jan Merkens, participated in this year’s General Assembly.
Jan presented two posters in the session „Global and continental scale risk assessment for natural hazards: methods and practice“.
Lena contributed an oral presentation in the session „Cultural Heritage resilience against climate events and other risks: modelling, remote and in-situ sensing, material characterization and ICT tools“.
Our doctoral researchers, Lena Reimann and Joshua Kiesel, participated in the 14th Young Coastal Scientists and Engineers Conference (YCSEC) hosted by the University of Hull. This conference aims at bringing together early career researchers and practitioners (such as PhD students, Post-Doc researchers and recently qualified professionals) from a variety of different disciplines, who are all concerned with the physical and biological processes within the coastal environment and related topics, e.g. marine renewables, impact of flooding and climate change, coastal erosion and morphological modelling, effects of pollution.
