  • Beach and Dune Restoration

    This book analyzes the tradeoffs involved in restoring beaches and dunes on intensively developed coasts, the most effective approaches to use, and the ways to educate and involve stakeholders. It identifies restoration strategies that enhance natural processes and make coastal landforms more dynamic while maintaining their value for shore ...

  • Science of Ecosystem-based Management

    Science for Ecosystem-based Management: Narragansett Bay in the 21st Century addresses the broad problem of coastal nutrient pollution. In the U.S., approximately two thirds of the coastal rivers and bays are moderately to severely degraded from nutrient pollution. However, debates continue about how large a problem nutrient pollution is and what ...

  • High Resolution Morphodynamics and Sedimentary Evolution of Estuaries

    Estuaries occur along many of the world’s coastlines irrespective of geologic setting, energy regime, and depositional environment. They represent the interface between fluvial, coastal and marine environments and they contain the sedimentary record of geological changes among these systems. However, detailed case studies on the morphodynamics and ...

  • Enclosed Experimental Ecosystems and Scale

    Enclosed ecosystem experiments have gained in popularity as research tools in ecological science, particularly in the study of coastal aquatic environments. These systems provide scientists with a degree of experimental control that is not achievable through field experiments. Yet to date, techniques for systematically extrapolating results from ...

  • Asia-Pacific Conference on Science and Management of Coastal Environment

    Human beings have a long historical relationship with the coast. Initially it provided food and security, later forming important locations for industrial and commercial development. Now the emphasis has shifted towards leisure and conservation, although the former functions remain crucial. However, it is only very recently that people have ...

  • Basic Coastal Engineering

    This text/reference is the only one of its kind to offer the basics on surface wave mechanics and coastal processes along with the fundamentals of coastal engineering analysis and design. It also provides the necessary background from which the reader can pursue a more advanced study of the various theoretical and applied aspects of coastal ...

  • Sustainable Water Ecosystems Management in Europe

    First book to consider citizens playing a role in the science-policy interface to help formulate durable responses to sustainability challenges Discusses all aspects to enhance the connectivity of actors in the sustainable water management field, with three pilot case studies showing how citizens and stakeholders can be engaged early and ...

  • Submarine Mass Movements and Their Consequences

    This book provides a world-wide perspective of submarine mass movements and their consequences. This has been made possible by assembling excellent contributions from active researchers, groups, or institutions, thus providing full coverage of the many scientific and engineering aspects of this type of marine and coastal geo-hazard. It covers ...

  • Decision Support Systems for Risk-Based Management of Contaminated Sites

    Decision Support Systems for Risk-Based Management of Contaminated Sites addresses decision making in environmental risk management for contaminated sites, focusing on the potential role of decision support systems in informing the management of chemical pollutants and their effects. Considering the environmental relevance and the financial ...
