Description 
Summary

PhaSE was a research project funded by the European Commission in the framework of the MAST III Programme. The aim was to study the interactions between physical forcing functions like wind, solar energy and tidal energy and biogeochemical fluxes in shallow coastal waters and to upscale from processes studied to a general integrated coastal zone model.
