Beach Management Tools CRL Front Cover

   This book provides an overview of beach management tools, including carrying capacity, beach nourishment, environmental and tourism awards (like Blue Flag or others), bathing water quality, zoning, beach typologies, quality index, user's perception, interdisciplinary beach monitoring, coastal legislation, shore protection, social and economic indicators, ecosystem services, and coastal governance (applied in beach case studies).  

   Beaches are one of the most intensely used coastal ecosystems and are responsible for more than half of all global tourism revenues, and as such the book introduces a wide range of state-of-the-art tools that can be used to deal with a variety of beach challenges. Each chapter features specific types of tools that can be applied to advantage in beach management practices. With examples of local and regional case studies from around the globe, this is a valuable resource for anyone involved in beach management.

Brazilian Beach Systems CRL Announcement

   This book is about the 4,000+ beach systems that form most of the 9000-km long Brazilian coast. Focusing on beaches of seventeen coastal states and three oceanic islands, the book considers the nature, classification, morphodynamics, and status of beach systems. This is the first book to cover the beach systems of Brazil and the second that classifies the beaches of an entire country, the first being the morphodynamic classification of Australian beaches. The beach-dominated Brazilian coast extends from the delta of the Amazon River southwards to one of the world's longest beaches in the State of Rio Grande do Sul. Considered here is every beach type ranging from wave- to tide-dominated examples that vary in size from small embayed beaches to long barrier beaches. This book, edited and written by leading academics and coastal researchers, is geared to the university and post-graduate market. It should be of interest to professional coastal and environmental scientists, biologists, engineers, and coastal managers, among others. Standard scientific (technical) terminology is used to describe the Brazilian coast and its beaches. With more than 400 original diagrams and figures, this well-illustrated book serves as a modern benchmark reference text for the Brazilian coast. This book provides a basic resource and reference base for researchers who wish to learn more about Brazil's coast and its beach systems.

CRL Environmental Management  Governance

   This book deals with recent advances in coastal marine environmental management and governance. Various chapters consider new aspects of conservation, assessment of ecosystem health status, environmental survey and protection, frameworks of ocean service and governance, new applications of geo processing and GIS technology, beach management, aquaculture site selection, assessment of water quality (brine disposal and temperature dispersion from nuclear power plants), exploration and management of coastal karst, changing perceptions of dune management, advances in interpretation of sea-level indicators and real time environmental monitoring. New advances in both environmental management and governance are of the utmost importance for sustaining critical coastal marine areas. Offering such a diverse collection of works from coastal scientists around the world, who discuss many techniques and methods at the forefront of management and governance, this publication will be of interest to coastal researchers, coastal zone managers and regulatory agency personnel.

CRL Seafloor Mapping along Continental Shelves

   This university-level reference work covers a range of remote sensing techniques that are useful for mapping and visualizing benthic environments on continental shelves. Chapters focus on overviews of the history and future of seafloor mapping techniques, cartographical visualisation and communication of seafloor mapping, and practical applications of new technologies. Seabed mapping is referenced by high-resolution seismic methods, sidescan sonar, multibeam bathymetry, satellite imagery, LiDAR, acoustic backscatter techniques, and soundscape ecology monitoring, use of autonomous underwater vehicles, among other methods. The wide breadth of subjects in this volume provides diversified coverage of seafloor imaging. This collection of modern seafloor mapping techniques summarizes the state of the art methods for mapping continental shelves.
