About this book

Highlighting the monitoring, analysis and modelling of environmental problems in coastal regions, including sea, air and other phenomena, this book features papers from the fifth international conference on this subject. Topics related to the prevention, alleviation and minimization of adverse effects are emphasised, while related areas such as the practical applications of computer modelling are also included.


Part I: COASTAL ENVIRONMENT. Section 1: Ecology and the environment. Effective use of geophysical sensors for marine environmental assessment and habitat mapping; The use of ecological models in the sustainable management of Estuaries; Planning of protection zones and management costs in protected coastal areas; Environmental considerations for sustainable development of the coastal region of Makri in the Evros prefecture, Greece; The management of the coastal grasslands of Estonia; The development of vessel wave wake criteria for the Noosa and Brisbane Rivers in Southeast Queensland. Section 2: Water quality issues.

Section 6: Atmospheric aspects.
