Abstract

The paper presents and discusses one possible basic concept of how to link up different sources of data, tools (eg numerical models) and information on effects of human activities and climatic change on the coastal environment for the benefit of individual users. These might be local, regional, national and international authorities as well as various research institutions like universities, research and data centres. The realization of this concept will avoid duplication of work. Moreover, it will give a significant added value to the numerous data, tools and information already available. Hence, the clearly visible scientific and technical advantage will be accompanied by a substantial economic benefit. Finally, this concept is not limited to the coastal zone community and can be adapted for other application areas.
