For upper-level courses in Coastal Resource Management in Departments of Environmental Studies. This -first-of-its-kind text offers an introduction to coastal and marine sanctuary management - the art and science of seeing the interrelationship between coastal land issues and adjacent marine sanctuary concerns. With a focus on understanding, monitoring, and managing these two related areas for their mutual benefit, it uses the U.S. National Marine Sanctuary program as a vehicle to discuss the physical nature of America's coasts, their environmental problems, and various other conservation strategies associated with the field of coastal resource management. Each major chapter is approximately 1/3 science, 1/3 policy, and 1/3 management.
