Description

In addition to its intrinsic value, the coastal zone is one of the most economically and ecologically significant landscapes on the planet. Heightened awareness of global climate change and associated rising sea levels has placed an increased impetus on the management of coastal systems. This session seeks presentations exploring recent advances and observations in applied, management-oriented coastal and aeolian research.
