Developing Coasts and Perturbed Ecosystems
Coastal ecosystems are under stress, their structures and functions are distorted, their ability to provide services are affected. Sea- and land-based human activities are the culprits with climate change exacerbating their adverse effects. This special issue will address themes related to coastal development and its impacts on ecosystems, and the available options for sustainable management. Focus will be on terrestrial influences on coastal systems resulting from land and water use, urbanization of coastal regions as well as the impacts of evolving nature and intensity of coastal resource use.
- Land-based activities and their impact on material fluxes to coastal seas
- Environmental and ecological impacts of coastal development
- Spatial-temporal changes in coastal zone use and coastal resource exploitation
- Options and current best practices to enhance coastal resource efficiency and sustainable coastal management
