The First International Conference on Coastal Environment had its origins in the State of Rio de Janeiro's desire to protect the environmental quality of its coastal region, and in particular its coastline, against the threat of rapid development. Held in 1996, the Conference provided a forum for the discussion of a range of air, sea and soil contamination problems and encouraged a better understanding of the type of remedial action required. In particular, it focussed on the development of computer models for coastal regions, highlighting those that could reproduce not only normal behaviour but also extreme conditions. The success of this first Conference led to the decision to reconvene the meeting, and the Second International Conference on Environmental Problems in Coastal Regions took place in Cancun, Mexico in September 1998. A substantial number of delegates from many different countries attended, and this book features a selection of their papers, classified under the following headings: * Environmental Impact Assessment * Coastal Management * Remote Sensing * Atmospheric Pollution * Water Pollution * Pollution Transport and Dispersion * Hydrodynamic Pollutant Transport Modelling * Coastal Structures * Groundwater Studies * Siltation and Dredging.
