The contributions establish vital strategies influencing (I) Behaviour of chemical species, (II) Nutrient biking and mechanisms of natural modifications and (III) Uptake of hint parts by means of dwelling platforms. the relationship among terrestrial and oceanic platforms is a practical one and the implications of this linkage at the very huge number of coastal platforms are profound.
