Welcome from our Hosts
50 years ago the Atlantic Estuarine Research Society (AERS) and the newly formed New England Estuarine Research Society (NEERS) convened a meeting at the Holiday Inn in Plainview, NY. Together, they forged a new national organization, the Estuarine Research Federation (ERF). Later renamed the Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation (CERF), this organization advances understanding and wise stewardship of estuarine and coastal ecosystems worldwide. There are now seven regionally based affiliate societies encompassing the coastal regions of North America. In celebration of the past 50 years and eager anticipation of the next half century of estuarine and coastal science and stewardship AERS and NEERS once again convene a joint meeting. Though we cannot meet at that same Holiday Inn in Plainview, NY as originally planned due to the pandemic, we will share our most recent advances and center stories of the people who make these strides - both established and rising voices. We look forward to sharing this history and future with you.
