About this book

These Proceedings incorporate scientific papers dealing with four different topics, covered over the two days of the Solent Science Conference: coastal processes; water quality and chemistry; biodiversity and conservation; and integrative Solent case studies. The papers are supplemented by a range of short contributions (presented originally as posters) which examine more specific pieces of research, and the findings of the Conference Workshops. Additionally, two maps have been included in the preface, showing the general location and main sites referenced.
