LMD No. 11 http://www.nla.gov.au/openpublish/index.php/lmd/issue/view/186
is a Special Edition on Coastal Management in China and Australia with Guest Editors Associate Professor Stuart Pearson, Dr Xiao Hua Wang (School of Physical, Environmental and Mathematical Sciences, University of New South Wales Canberra at the Australian Defence Force Academy) and Professor Guifang Xue (Institute for the Law of the Sea, Ocean University of China).

This Special Edition of Labour and Management in Development continues a tradition of bringing to light innovative research and management, sometimes from researchers and places that are under-represented in English language journals. Through the support of the Australian National Library; the work of the Editor Professor Michael Hess; the English language and editorial assistance of Dr Zuojun Yu and Ms Julie Kesby; and the careful and helpful work of reviewers this Edition will now give the reader access to the existing and emerging research being conducted to inform the management of China's and Australia's coastal and ocean zones.

Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science Vol 93(3) 2011:

Special Issue: Dynamics of Chinese Muddy Coasts and Estuaries
Due the presence of several large rivers, China has one of the most turbid marine environments in the world along its coasts and estuaries. In addition, the nutrients and pollutants released from these large river catchments are delivered to and dispersed in the coastal sea, and their biogeochemical behaviours are greatly involved in the process of fine sediment transport, resulting in distinct physical, chemical and biological responses in the coastal environment.

With regards to the above contextual information, SARCCM has sponsored a Special Issue entitled ‘Dynamics of Chinese Muddy Coasts and Estuaries’ in Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science published in July 2011 [ECSS, Vol 93(3)]. The special issue is a collection of the papers presented in the workshop ‘Dynamics of Chinese Muddy Coasts and Estuaries’ held in September 2009 in Guilin, China. There are a total of ten papers contributed to this issue as case studies of Changjiang, Huanghe and Zhujiang estuaries and Chinese muddy coasts in the Bohai, Yellow, East China and South China Seas. These papers represent the most recent advancement in Chinese estuarine and coastal sediment research.
The papers for this Special Issue included:
