Description

Unique in perspective, this first-of-its-kind book 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. Looks at issues such as coastal hazards, coastal pollution, ocean dumping, offshore oil development and transport, and open space preservation and management. Explores the full range of social, cultural, legal, political, economic, and ethical aspects of coastal and marine sanctuary management. Emphasizes programs that are moving toward integrated coastal resource management. Discusses the pros and cons of various issues and gives specific recommendations for moving "from the problem" to a possible solution. Highlights The Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary -- one of the newest and most extensive units in the Program, and the second largest sanctuary in the world. Links coastal resource management (traditionally "dryside" only) with ocean/sanctuary management (traditionally "wetside" only). Relates coastal issues to key concepts of traditional (folk) resource management as well as to modern-day U.S. environmental thought. Includes case studies for each of the problem issues. For anyone involved with a coastal environment, including those in government, education, parks and recreation, planning, management, etc.show more
