The book is a valuable source of data for scholars and readers who are interested in mitigating the effects of pollution on coastal waters. Show less Mediterranean Coastal Pollution focuses on scientific and technical information on the progress of measures and initiatives relative to the control of pollution in the Mediterranean. This original volume draws on the author's own research experiences in Ireland, Britain, France, Canada, and the United States to present a guide of coastal environments for applications of shoreline and environmental management. Topics include: long-term development of coasts, water supply and waste disposal, energy resources and coastal water management, coastal water management for.
We conclude that, at the start of the s, the major causes of immediate concern in the environment on a global basis are coastal development and the attendant destruction of habitats, eutrophication, microbial contamination of seafood and beaches, fouling of the seas by plastic litter, progressive build-up of chlorinated hydrocarbons, especially in the tropics and subtropics and accumulation of tar on beaches. It explains how Blue Flag assists the tourism sector and at the same time helps to improve the coastal environment. The book includes chapters on the history of the Blue Flag campaign, how the campaign is financed and monitored, and criteria and lessons which can be learned from the European experience.

The main part of the book consists of a discussion of the main coastal environments (beaches, dunes, barriers, salt marshes, tidal flats, estuaries, coral reefs, deltas, rocky and glaciated coasts and coastal groundwater), and how these are affected by global change.
Topics include: long-term development of coasts, water supply and waste disposal, energy resources and coastal water management, coastal water management for recreation, coastal management of storm hazards, and managing world sea-level rise. While coastal tourism has been treated from many perspectives, this book offers the first substantial examination of the environmental basis of coastal tourism.
The first part of the book examines some of the basic aspects and various methodologies of the coastal environment for tourism. Nature Guide to the Carolina Coast, second edition, is a completely updated, revised, and expanded version of the book originally published in It is a practical, entertaining, reader-friendly guide to the common animals, plants, and environment of the Carolina coast/5(36).
This present volume focuses on the physical environment of coastal tourism, particularly the geomorphological aspects. The papers deal with basic aspects of the coastal environment for tourism, methodologies for assessing the coastal environment Coastal Environment tourism and empirical studies of various types of coastal environment with tourism development.
Coastal environments are among the most complex regions of the world's oceans. They are the transition zone between the open ocean and terrestrial watersheds with important and disparate spatial and temporal scales occurring in the physical as well as biogeochemical processes.
This book describes critical environmental issues that face coastal ocean and Great Lakes areas, including eutrophication, habitat modification, hydrologic and hydrodynamic disruption, exploitation of resources, toxic effects on ecosystems and humans, introduction of nonindigenous species, global climate change and variability, and shoreline erosion and hazardous storms.

This book will be of interest to anyone studying: coastal hydrology and water resources. The book is highly illustrated with diagrams and original plates. The comprehensive balance of illustrations and academic thought provides a well balanced view between the role of coastal catastrophes and gradual processes, also examining the impact humans and society have and continue to have on the coastal environment/5(3).
In Coastal Nature, Coastal Culture, editors Paul S. Sutter and Paul M. Pressly have brought together work from leading historians as well as environmental writers and activists that explores how nature and culture have coexisted and interacted across five millennia of human history along the Georgia coast, as well as how those interactions have shaped the coast as we know it today.
Focuses on the characteristic landforms and environments found in the coastal zone as well as the processes that form these landforms. This book covers the many coastal hazards that threaten our environment, including cliff erosion from wave and storm action, and the hazards associated with powerful tides.

The term ‘coastal environment’ refers to a broader area which is identified in the Resource Management Act (RMA) as requiring special management, but the term itself is not defined.
However, Policy 1 of the New Zealand Coastal Policy Statement lists factors to consider in identifying the extent of the coastal environment. This free course, Managing coastal environments, looks at the example of the Blackwater Estuary in Essex, England, describing how the current state of the estuary came to be.
It examines the contests and conflicts that centre on the estuary in terms of managing the environment for human needs and the needs of the other species who make their.
