A new publication has just been shared with us by one of our Academy members, Dr Gerardo M. E. Perillo. This article, published on Ocean and Coastal Management, is part of a Special Issue on Coastal Management and COVID-19 currently being edited.

This paper looks at a mesotidal beach on the southwest coast of the Buenos Aires Province and analyses its carrying capacity during the 2020/2021 summer season. Here, the authors aim to determine the beach’s optimal use according to its tides, socio-environmental characteristics, and the perception of the interested parties during the 2020/2021 summer season in the pandemic context in Pehuén Co Beach in Argentina. The information acquired is essential for coastal management following the COVID-19 irruption to ensure maximum efficiency in using the beach whilst maintaining a safe social distance.
