Dynamic Sedimentary Environments of Mangrove Coasts provides knowledge on the importance of sedimentary dynamics in managing mangrove forests. In the first part of the book, the editors seamlessly offer a general introduction of mangrove sedimentary dynamics. This leads into more in-depth information on soil surface elevation change, sea level rise, and the importance of sedimentary dynamics in the loss or gain of blue carbon. The book concludes the discussion of mangrove sedimentary dynamics by addressing the issues of climate change (e.g. sea level rise and blue carbon) on mangrove restoration and sediment. This book will assist coastal managers and academics in addressing the gaps in mangrove restoration and coastal management. As such, it will be a valuable reference for advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, researchers, academics in the field of coastal restoration, and coastal management practitioners. Provides a state-of-the-art summary of research into sedimentary dynamics in mangrove forests Includes updates on issues of climate change-relevant to mangroves, such as blue carbon and sea level rise Presents scientific background and successful case studies for mangrove restoration that can solve problems relating to mangrove management

Mangroves and Sediment Dynamics Along the Coasts of Southern Thailand

Thirty-year runs of the demographic simulation model revealed that herbivory and water turbulence were the main factors influencing the success of colonization in a mangrove-dominated bay while gradual sedimentation and salinity had little effect. Avicennia was the most successful taxon in colonizing open mudflats followed by Sonneratia while Rhizophora exhibited

Land Surface Remote Sensing in Urban and Coastal Areas

For a long time, the dynamics of urban and coastal areas have been the focus of administrators and decision makers in charge of public policy in order to better take into account anthropogenic pressure and the impact of climate change. This volume presents applications of remote sensing in urban environments

Fine Sediment Dynamics in the Marine Environment

Cohesive sediment, or mud, is encountered in most water bodies throughout the world. Often mud is a valuable resource, synonymous with fertile land, enriching the natural environment and used as an important building material. Yet mud also hinders navigation and consequently, dredging operations have been carried out since ancient times

Sediment Dynamics and Deposits Along the Fluvial marine Transition

Rivers supply the vast majority of sediment that reaches the global ocean. As many rivers approach the sea, they experience tidal influence in the absence of salinity, along a reach known as the tidal river. As a result, a significant fraction of the sediment discharged by rivers around the world

Coastal Zone Management Imperative for Maritime Developing Nations

Anthropogenic transformation of the coastal zone continues at a steady pace, especially in the developing maritime countries, where coastal resources are often crucial to national economies. However, exploitation of these resources is often indiscriminate, ill planned, or carried out without adequate scientific knowledge. This leads to rapid resource depletion, and
