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. These factors include atmospheric changes, sea level rise, alterations in freshwater and sediment use and transport, toxins, overfishing, alien species, and eutrophication.

Each chapter presents a different topic and includes:

case studies providing real–world examples

a detailed review of the evidence of changes and possible solutions to resulting problems

references to the primary literature.

Global Coastal Change brings together a wealth of important information about our changing marine environments and will be an invaluable reference for upper level undergraduates, graduates, and professionals interested in marine environmental science.
