Land Ocean Interaction Study
Project DescriptionThe Land Ocean Interaction Study (LOIS) is a Community Research Project of
the Natural Environment Research Council of the United Kingdom. The broad
aim of LOIS is to gain an understanding of, and an ability to predict, the
nature of environmental change in the coastal zone around the UK.
The LOIS CRP will provide for the first time an integrated, holistic view
of how coastal ecosystems work, and how they are likely to respond to
future environmental changes caused by the activities of people, on land
and at sea.
LOIS projects include the River-Atmosphere-Coast Study (RACS) and the
Shelf-Edge Study (SES). Data collection, analysis, and data archival are
performed by research centers and universities around the UK.
