Ecological Connectivity among Tropical Coastal Ecosystems
Ecological Connectivity among Tropical Coastal Ecosystems

Mangrove forests, seagrass beds, and coral reefs are circumtropical ecosystems that are highly productive, and provide many important biological functions and economic services. These ecosystems cover large surface areas in the shallow tropical coastal seascape but have suffered from serious human degradation, especially in the last few decades....

Marine Pollution and Human Health (Issues in Environmental Science and Technology)
Marine Pollution and Human Health (Issues in Environmental Science and Technology)
There is growing concern about the state of the world's oceans. The rapid growth of human populations in coastal regions has led to increasing dependence on marine resources. Beneficial features related to food supply and life style need to be balanced against the hazards presented by microbial pathogens, chemical pollutants, and toxic algal...
Human Impact on the Natural Environment
Human Impact on the Natural Environment

A brand new edition of the definitive textbook on humankind’s impact on the Earth’s environment—now in full color

This classic text explores the multitude of impacts that humans have had over time upon vegetation, animals, soils, water, landforms, and the atmosphere. It considers the ways in which climate...

Physics of Tsunamis
Physics of Tsunamis

This second edition reflects significant progress in tsunami research, monitoring and mitigation within the last decade. Primarily meant to summarize the state-of-the-art knowledge on physics of tsunamis, it describes up-to-date models of tsunamis generated by a submarine earthquake, landslide, volcanic eruption, meteorite impact, and moving...

It's Easy Being Green: Simple Ways to Save the Planet: 101 Ways to Save the Planet
It's Easy Being Green: Simple Ways to Save the Planet: 101 Ways to Save the Planet

Our excessive use of natural resources − fuelled by population increases and a relentless pursuit of economic growth and material possessions − is causing alarming damage to the environment.

Human activity, such as burning fossil fuels, is causing a build-up of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2) in the...

Estuarine Ecology
Estuarine Ecology

Estuaries are among the most biologically productive ecosystems on the planet--critical to the life cycles of fish, other aquatic animals, and the creatures which feed on them. Estuarine Ecology, Second Edition, covers the physical and chemical aspects of estuaries, the biology and ecology of key organisms, the flow of organic matter...

Coastal Pollution: Effects on Living Resources and Humans (Marine Science)
Coastal Pollution: Effects on Living Resources and Humans (Marine Science)

In 1996, after more than a decade of researching the effects of over-population and the consequent pollution of the greater metropolitan New York City area, Carl Sindermann published his observations and conclusions in Ocean Pollution: Effects on Living Resources and Humans, a mostly technical document that emphasized the pathological effects...

Ecology of Marine Sediments (Oxford Biology)
Ecology of Marine Sediments (Oxford Biology)
Marine sediments provide the largest habitat on planet earth, yet knowledge of the structure and function of their flora and fauna continues to be poorly described in current textbooks. This concise, readable introduction to benthic ecology builds upon the strengths of the previous edition but has been thoroughly revised throughout to incorporate...
Cultures of Mass Tourism (New Directions in Tourism Analysis)
Cultures of Mass Tourism (New Directions in Tourism Analysis)

With more than 230 million international tourists a year, the Mediterranean region is the largest tourist destination in the world. Indeed, it is now less united by olive, grain and vine cultivation than the fortnightly pulse of the package tour, the circulation of resort types and the shared culture of sun-seeking tourism. This book argues that...

Rogue Waves in the Ocean (Advances in Geophysical and Environmental Mechanics and Mathematics)
Rogue Waves in the Ocean (Advances in Geophysical and Environmental Mechanics and Mathematics)

The book is written for specialists in the fields of fluid mechanics, applied mathematics, nonlinear physics, physical oceanography and geophysics, and also for students learning these subjects. It includes a wide range of observational data on rogue (or freak) waves in the seas and coastal waters, as well as presenting a basic statistical...

SPAR Platforms: Technology and Analysis Methods
SPAR Platforms: Technology and Analysis Methods

The design, analysis, and use of spar platforms for offshore oil production is examined thoroughly in this new book. This volume surveys the history of spar development and presents detailed design modeling aspects of spar hull, mooring, and anchoring systems. Ocean and coastal engineers, those involved in the design and construction of...

Long-term Perspective in Coastal Zone Development: Multifunctional Coastal Protection Zones
Long-term Perspective in Coastal Zone Development: Multifunctional Coastal Protection Zones

The southern coast of the North Sea is mainly protected by a single line of defence against flooding. The traditional means for heightening and strengthening the existing coastal barriers are limited due to the increased enormous resource costs, i.e. building materials, funding and space. On the other hand, further interests and needs such as...
