Coastal regions around the world have some environmental features and problems unique to their location. Containing the proceedings of the fourth international conference on this topic, this volume highlights the latest research on these important regions. The contributions featured will aid the understanding of risk, hazard mitigation and remediation strategies and help to protect the business and leisure activities so crucial to these areas. Topics covered include: environmental management and impact; oil slicks and spills; erosion and drift; sediment transport; hydrodynamics and transport modelling; water quality issues; and atmospheric pollution and control. A number of the papers reflect the use of remote sensing in the monitoring of coastal regions and the detection of problems such as pollution or drift.
