FEC Alumni

Future Earth Coasts builds on over 20 years of global scientific experience and applied research—originally the Land-Ocean Interactions in the Coastal Zone (LOICZ) project of the former International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme and the International Human Dimensions Programme. Over the years a number of high-ranking international scientists with various disciplinary backgrounds have served on the Scientific Steering Committee of either LOICZ or later FEC.

Below you will find a list of the FEC Alumni.
