East China Normal University(ECNU) hosts and treasures the well-known State Key Laboratory of Estuarine and Coastal Research (SKLEC). The laboratory was established by the State Planning Commission of China in 1989. There are three main research streams of SKLEC: (1) Estuarine Evolution and Estuarine Sediment Dynamics; (2) Coastal Dynamical Geomorphyology and Sediment Process; (3) Estuarine and Coastal Ecology and Environment.
Achievements of the laboratory were used to solve problems encountered in coastal development of China, especially many large engineering projects, such as national survey on coastal resources, construction for harbors and ports, navigation channel regulations, projection of coastal wetlands and engineering structures. SKLEC has become a national site for high level research on estuarine and coastal environment and a high level training base in China.

The Mega-Delta program is based on the “Mega-Delta Workgroup” of Future Earth Coasts. It aims to provide solutions to the problems faced by different types of deltas in different regions with different levels of social-economic development. All the deltas are faced with challenges caused by climate change and human activities. Thus, combined efforts from different organizations and multi-disciplines are required to fulfill.
