CRL Remote Sensing  Modeling

   This book is geared for advanced level research in the general subject area of remote sensing and modeling as they apply to the coastal marine environment. The various chapters focus on the latest scientific and technical advances in the service of better understanding coastal marine environments for their care, conservation and management. Chapters specifically deal with advances in remote sensing coastal classifications, environmental monitoring, digital ocean technological advances, geophysical methods, geoacoustics, X-band radar, risk assessment models, GIS applications, real-time modeling systems, and spatial modeling. Readers will find this book useful because it summarizes applications of new research methods in one of the world's most dynamic and complicated environments. Chapters in this book will be of interest to specialists in the coastal marine environment who deals with aspects of environmental monitoring and assessment via remote sensing techniques and numerical modeling.

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.

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.

Diversity in the Coastal Marine Sciences CRL Front Cover

   This book integrates a wide range of subjects into a coherent purview of the status of coastal marine science. Designed for the professional or specialist in coastal science, oceanography, and related disciplines, this work will appeal to workers in multidisciplinary fields that strive for practical solutions to environmental problems in coastal marine settings around the world. Examples are drawn from many different geographic areas, including the Black Sea region. Subject areas covered include aspects of coastal marine geology, physics, chemistry, biology, and history. These subject areas were selected because they form the basis for integrative investigation of salient environmental problems or perspective solutions or interpretation of historical context.
