Short summary
We carried out a literature review and an opinion poll of the JERICO-NEXT community to identify the main environmental threats in European coastal areas and gaps in monitoring. The need for improved monitoring was highlighted, e.g. through improved design and monitoring effort and better links with new technologies. The findings underpin the JERICO-NEXT science strategy to integrate linkages between physical, chemical, and biological parameters to address scientific and policy needs.
