Coastal Zone Management: Global Perspectives, Regional Processes, Local Issues brings together a vast range ofinterdisciplinary data on coastal zones in a concise, yet exhaustive format that will be useful to students, researchers, and teachers. The book contains several focused sections, all of which include individual chapters written by subject experts with considerable experience in their fields of research. Each chapter presents the latest research and status of its focus, with a concluding endnote on future trends. Topics covered in the bookinclude the sea level and climate changes, evolution of coastlines, land-use dynamics and coastal hazards mitigation and management.

The global coast has faced the force of both climate hange and natural disasters, which continue to result in the loss of human life and degradation of quality of the coastal environment. Coastal Zone Management: Global Perspectives, Regional Processes, Local Issues provides the latest developments and key strategies to tackle this in a single comprehensive volume. It is an essential reference for scientists and researchers well-read on coastal zones, as well as those new to the subject.

  • Presents a unique compilation of contributed chapters, including a focus on methodology, case studies, stategy, and policy, acting as a one-source reference for students, teachers, researchers and administrators.
  • Discusses challenges at local levels in order to help interpret regional processes that have global ramifications.
  • Provides a database for scientists working on research topics related to coastal zone management.
