"In recent years, it has become increasingly important to study the behaviour of coastal areas, and to be able to model such regions under normal and extreme conditions. The poor environmental quality in these regions, due to pollution and other problems, has been the cause of serious international concern, with many of the worst affected areas being densely populated or the sites of major industrial development. Computer models, in combination with sensing equipment and experimental sampling techniques, have helped in the prevention of natural and man-made disasters, by providing adequate means for the study of the behaviour of water, ground and air systems. Computer models are also used for the determination and assessment of a situation once a disaster has occurred, thus aiding the optimization of the resources available from remedial action. However, it is clear that further study into environmental problems, using efficient and reliable modelling and analysis tools, is essential in order to maintain and improve on existing methods." "This book will be of particular interest to people involved in environmental studies and environmental modelling."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

We are doing what we are asking the Federal Government to do . We take a
portion of our mineral income from our offshore production and we dedicate it to
fighting the coastal problems by a constitutional amendment that was passed .

Coastal Problems

A major theme of the book is that, given recent downgrading of predictions of future sea level rise, it is the distinctive geomorphological, ecological and societal aspects of each coast which are the vital factors.

As coastal populations burgeon, problems of erosion, pollution and coastal change are becoming ever more serious and necessitate scientifically informed management strategies. This authoritative new study discusses the causes of, and possible solutions to, some of the more pressing problems at the coast, against a background of the natural geomorphological and ecological workings of coastal environments. A holistic approach to the understanding of coastal problems is suggested, which integrates geomorphology, ecology and society through a consideration of the basic processes at work. Coastal problems are caused by both human and natural impacts, often working in conjunction with each other; thus drawing on their wide experience of temperate and tropical coasts the authors consider all types of coastal problems, ranging from those produced entirely naturally to those where the human impact dominates. Extensive use is made of case studies drawn from around the world, from beach erosion along the Nigerian coast to the recovery of the Vietnamese mangroves from war damage. A major theme of the book is that, given recent downgrading of predictions of future sea level rise, it is the distinctive geomorphological, ecological and societal aspects of each coast which are the vital factors. 'Coastal Problems' brings together material vital to any attempts to understand and manage our coasts and will be of interest to all those concerned with the environment and its management.

Coastal Environments: Problems and Perspectives display the impact of natural forces and processes on man and also the impact of man on the coastal environment. The exploitation of natural mineral resources, navigation and recreation activities are an integral part of the problems and perspectives of coastal environments. This volume highlights various processes, particularly sediment transport, coastal erosion and its management, landform evolution and resources of the coastal region. The case studies are presented under each section. The availability of comprehensive basic scientific data is vital for effective coastal zone management. There are sixteen papers together on coastal resources, coastal landforms, coastal erosion, sediment transport and dredging and all these add the scientific information for coastal zone management. The last section of the book comprises the papers on application of remote sensing in environmental studies and two assorted papers on surface run-off and flora of Gondwanaland. The causes for coastal erosion, the present scenario of erosion along Kerala and Karnataka coasts and the mitigation procedures have been explained in this book. The utility of seawalls and other protection structures in arresting coastal erosion has been discussed and debated in detail.

The coastal zone is subject to strong pressures from a large number of users. Populations are migrating to it in large numbers. Industry wants to exploit it for its space, water and manpower. Aggregate miners want to exploit mineral resources and health centers are multiplying. It is a favorite area for tourism and recreation worldwide. The zone can boom economically. However, coastlines are progressively receding worldwide, making the zone fragile, vulnerable, and unstable. The book presents methods of coastal protection and beach restoration and offers solutions to the various problems.
