    This book presents a collection of extended papers based on presentations given during the ICEC conference, held in Caen, France, in August , and provides the latest developments based on new numerical schemes, high-performance computing, multi-physics and multi-scale methods, and others. Description Building upon the book Disappearing Destinations (Jones and Phillips ) and its conclusion that promoted the need to recognize problems, meet expectations and manage solutions Global Climate Change and Coastal Tourism explores current threats to, and consequences of, climate change on existing tourism coastal destinations. Part 1 of the book .

    Global climate change and coastal tourism: recognizing problems, managing solutions and future expectations. Description This book aims to update the last volume, Disappearing Destinations (), and presents new cases that discuss current threats and consequences of climate change predictions on coastal tourism destinations. "The coastal zone is one of the most dynamic environments on our planet and is much affected by global change, especially sea-level rise. Not only do coastal environments harbour valuable ecosystems, but they are also hugely important from a societal point of view.

    The main part of the book consists of a discussion of the main coastal environments (beaches, dunes, barriers, salt marshes, tidal flats, estuaries, coral reefs, deltas, rocky and glaciated coasts and coastal groundwater), and how these are affected by global change. The final chapter highlights strategies for coping with coastal change/5(2).

Global Coastal Changeprovides a comprehensive overview of the environmental factors changing the marine systems of the world including atmospheric changes, sea level rise, alterations in freshwater and sediment use and transport, toxins, overfishing, alien species, and by: "Global Coastal Change provides a comprehensive overview of the environmental factors changing the marine systems of the world.

Evaluating the evidence of change at a local and global level, this important text examines a wide range of factors affecting coastal environments.

Book Description The coastal zone is one of the most dynamic environments on our planet and is much affected by global change, especially sea-level rise. Coastal environments harbour valuable ecosystems, but they are also hugely important from a societal point of view.

The main part of the book consists of a discussion of the main coastal environments (beaches, dunes, barriers, salt marshes, tidal flats, estuaries, coral reefs, deltas, rocky and glaciated coasts and coastal groundwater), Global coastal change book how these are.

This book, which draws on the expertise of 21 leading international coastal scientists, represents an up-to-date account of coastal environments and past, present and future impacts of global change.

The Global coastal change book chapter of the book outlines key principles that underpin coastal systems and their behaviour.

Coastal Management: Global Challenges and Innovations focuses on the resulting problems faced by coastal areas in developing countries with a goal of helping create updated management and tactical approaches for researchers, field practitioners, planners and policymakers.

This book gathers, compiles and interprets recent developments, starting from paleo-coastal climatic conditions, to current climatic conditions that influence coastal.

About this book. In global coastal zones, the major fabric of goods and services for human welfare as well as global changes are extraordinarily visible. They are shaped by natural Earth systems processes on a planetary scale, which are reflected in a continuously adapting coastal.

About this book. Introduction. Climate change and ongoing transformation processes in economy and agriculture will have strong and multiple impacts in the Baltic region. In particular coastal zones face increasing hazards, e.g.

due to sea level rise or changes in riverine nutrient loads and eutrophication. Coastal Change Diverse and complex natural processes continually change coasts physically, chemically, and biologically, at scales that range from microscopic (grains of sand) to global (changes in sea level).

Regional and local characteristics of coasts control the differing interactions and relative importance of these natural processes.

Another strength of Global Change and Integrated Coastal Management is the geographical nature of the content. This book brings together socio-economic, cultural and physical environmental change.

This is an advantage over other coastal texts currently available, and globalizes its value to all coastal scientists.".

Human health is vulnerable to climate change. The changing environment is expected to cause more heat stress, an increase in waterborne diseases, poor air quality, and diseases transmitted by insects and rodents. Extreme weather events can compound many of these health threats. Indo-Pacific Ocean warming is changing global rainfall patterns.

Coastal Areas. Global climate change threatens coastlines and the buildings and cities located along them. Hundreds of millions of people around the world live in low–lying areas near the coast that could be flooded as the sea level rises.

Rising sea level will also erode beaches and damage many coastal wetlands. This book, which draws on the expertise of 21 leading international coastal scientists, represents an up-to-date account of coastal environments and past, present and future impacts of global change.

The first chapter of the book outlines key principles that underpin coastal systems and their behaviour/5(2). Audience: This book is of interest to a wide readership.

Scientists and researchers in the fields of environmental and coastal science and management, global change, geosciences, geography, and social sciences as well as employees at NGOs and policy makers will find valuable information in this book. This book explains the consequences of further climate change, from flooding of coastal areas to unhealthy pollution in urban areas, and how governments, businesses, and citizens can proactively work on limiting their use of greenhouse gases.

International accords such as the Paris agreement of and the Kyoto Protocol of are also. numerous books on coastal problems, environmental challenges overemphasis on climate as the prime driver of landscape change.

This comprehensive book summarises the deepening complexity of multiple drivers of change, recognising the role that relief plays Geomorphology and Global Environmental Change, Slaymaker.

A golden oldie, The End of Nature by US-scholar and long-term climate activist Bill McKibben, is said to be the first non-scientific book on global warming. It treats climate change as one part of a global ecological crisis, which can only be solved by a radical change of the perception, and treatment, of nature.

Another strength of Global Change and Integrated Coastal Management is the geographical nature of the content. This book brings together socio-economic, cultural and physical environmental change. This is an advantage over other coastal texts currently available, and globalizes its value to all coastal scientists."Author: Nick Harvey.The idea for this book arose from a meeting of coastal scientists in Kobe, Japan in May The meeting was organized by the Asia-Pacific Network for Global Change Research (APN), an inter-governmental network, comprising 21 member countries, for the promotion of global change research and links between science and policy making in the region.Managing Ocean Environments in a Changing Climate summarizes the current state of several threats to the global oceans.

What distinguishes this book most from previous works is that this book begins with a holistic, global-scale focus for the first several chapters and then provides an example of how this approach can be applied on a regional.
