Aoraki/Mount Cook, New Zealand
Photographed by Jooyong Lee
Aoraki / Mount Cook is the highest mountain in New Zealand. Its height since 2014 is listed as 3,724 m (12,218 ft), down from 3,764 m (12,349 ft) before December 1991, due to a rockslide and subsequent erosion. It lies in the Southern Alps, the mountain range which runs the length of the South Island. A popular tourist destination, it is also a favorite challenge for mountain climbers. The summits lie slightly south and east of the main divide of the Southern Alps, with the Tasman Glacier to the east and the Hooker Glacier to the west. The Southern Alps on the South Island in New Zealand were formed by tectonic uplifting and pressure as the Pacific and Indo-Australian Plates collided along the island's western coast. The uplifting continues, raising Aoraki / Mount Cook an average of 7 mm (0.28 in) each year. However, erosive forces are also powerful shapers of the mountains. The severe weather is due to the mountain's jutting into powerful westerly winds of the Roaring Forties which run around approximately 45°S latitude, south of both Africa and Australia. The Southern Alps are the first obstacle the winds encounter after South Africa and Australia, having moved east across the Southern Ocean.

The Third International Conference on the Management of Coastal Recreational Resources
Grosseto, Tuscany, Italy 27-30 October 2010
Conference Chairman: Dr. Anton Micallef
*Deadline For Abstracts: 15 March 2010*
The conference is the third in the biennial series on Management of Coastal Recreational Resources (MCRR) organised by the Euro-Mediterranean Centre on Insular Coastal Dynamics (ICoD), within the International Environment Institute at the University of Malta. This international event is characterized by its focus on selected coastal management issues relating to beaches, yacht marinas, ecotourism & conservation, and the impact of coastal hazards on such resources.
The Conference aims to bring together researchers as well as practitioners and policy makers to highlight and discuss issues of concern while also showcasing appropriate solutions through the exchange of experiences, best-practice scenarios and innovative management concepts. In this manner, the Conference will provide an opportunity to consider issues of concern to both tourism and the environment sector, and to address sustainable management practice in these fields by exploring the dependency of tourism on a well-managed environment and conversely, the negative impact of insensitive tourism on environmental quality.
The conference is aimed at academics in the natural and social sciences, researchers dealing with coastal hazards reflected by ongoing climate change, project managers, tourism professionals, infrastructure investors and staff from the private sector and government agencies whose work involves integrated coastal area management practices and the development and management of coast-related recreational amenities. The conference will also be of interest to managers of natural resources and environmental agencies, urban and coastal planners, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), environmental economists and coastal municipalities.
