The Atlantic Estuarine Research Society (AERS) is a non-profit society serving the scientific and management community and is operated to foster educational and research purposes. The objectives are the exploration, discussion and exchange of ideas upon estuarine and related research problems, from New Jersey to North Carolina, but not necessarily restricted to that area. Emphasis is placed on the consideration of interdisciplinary studies that span basic and applied topics. Especially desirable are reports of work in progress, including negative results. AERS is an affiliate society of the Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation (CERF).
AERS is an inclusive organization and does not discriminate based on an individual’s age, ancestry, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, national origin, race, religious affiliation, sexual orientation or veteran status. AERS does not tolerate unwanted verbal, physical, or visual conduct relating to any of those characteristics.
