About this book

Multidisciplinary in approach, this book is a useful resource for anyone involved in the study or management of coastal and marine pollution problems. A wealth of data is presented in an organised framework on a wide range of subject areas, including eutrophication, organic loading, oil pollution, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, halogenated hydrocarbon, trace metals, radioactive waste, dredging and dredged-spoil disposal and the effects of power stations located in coastal and estuarine areas.
