Water Resources and Coastal Management presents a comprehensive and unique collection of articles which provide an interdisciplinary perspective on the science and management of global coastal resources.

This important volume comprises five main sections. Part I reviews basic scientific concepts and underpinning knowledge of the processes at work in this dynamic environment. Part II considers how the natural variability of coastal zone environments has been unsustainably exacerbated by development and exploitation of such resources. Parts III and IV focus upon the various aspects of the management response options that could or have been deployed both in developed and developing countries. Finally, Part V examines the management issues that surround regional seas and their, often international, resource regions.
‘Water Resources and Coastal Management is a timely contribution to the literature on integrated coastal management (ICM). . . In providing an interdisciplinary perspective on the science and management of coastal resources, this reader complements the considerable number of academic texts which have been published on ICM over the last decade. . . It is particularly well structured. . . this reader is an excellent resource for a wide range of environmental, marine and coastal scientists and practitioners, as well as its main market – university students at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.’
– Rhoda Ballinger, The Holocene
