Coastal Zone Management

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Coastal Zone Management contains a comprehensive collection of technical papers on each of the key areas of major relevance in the subject.Topics covered include coastal planning and its related legal problems, as well as management issues, such as the prioritisation of needs and risks and the economic appraisal of coastal initiatives. Further chapters consider techniques for data handling and the computer modelling of marine systems and the coastal environment.
Each chapter is written in an accessible, readable style, containing case studies and examples from around the world which illustrate the principles and topical issues covered and emphasise the practical aspect of this discipline.With extensive coverage of both theory and practice, written by an international group of experts, Coastal Zone Management will be of considerable interest to coastal engineers, managers, and coastal practitioners in local authorities, as well as students and researchers from undergraduate level upwards studying coastal and marine resource management or Integrated Coastal Zone Management.
