About this book

San Diego Bay in California is a shallow estuary surrounded by a large population centre. Geological forces and changes in sea levels from the last Ice Age combine to make the Bay and the adjacent highlands and mesas. Human activity has also influenced the Bay. Humans built several major cities and filled significant parts of the Bay. Making and Unmaking of San Diego Bay describes the natural history and evolution of the San Diego Bay Area over the last 50 million years through the present and into the future.

Key features:
- Summarizes a complex geological, geographical, and ecological history
- Reviews how the San Diego Bay has changed and will likely change in the future
- Examines the different roles of various drivers of Bay ecosystem function
- Includes the role of humans – both first people and modern populations – on the Bay
- Explores San Diego Bay as an example of general bay ecological and environmental issues
