By Chad J. McGuire

Complete, yet now not overly technical, this booklet offers a legal-policy framework to the dialogue of the way coastal managers can most sensible process the matter of sea point upward push. It identifies felony obstacles and provides proposed options to mitigate the influence of these limitations. The e-book introduces the problem, delves into the technological know-how at the back of sea point upward thrust, discusses coverage complexities and strategies, by means of an outline of similar legalities, then, bringing all of it jointly, the writer applies the foundations provided within the publication, concluding with techniques and strategies and a point of view at the destiny.

Sample text

Finally, there is strong evidence that the rate of sea level rise will exceed that of the twentieth century in the twenty-first century (Jevrejeva et al. 2008). Areas of the coast that exhibit combinations of at-risk characteristics identified above and are found in dynamic locations will be prime targets for continued and sustained physical impacts of sea level rise for the foreseeable future. As such, these are likely key areas for policy consideration. Ecosystem impacts consider the effect of sea level rise on vulnerable coastal species and associated habitat.

The goal now is to look at the impact that current observations of sea level rise are having on our coastal areas. 3, where future predictions of sea level rise are discussed in greater depth, including the impacts that future predictions might have on land use planning within the coastal zone. 3. So as impacts are discussed generally here, qualifications will be made on the potential for these impacts to be realized in relation to different features encountered at the coast. Qualifications aside, current impacts on coastal areas can be divided into three main considerations: (1) physical impacts that take into account the physical features of the coast and the physical processes that both drive sea level rise and are impacted by sea level rise; (2) ecosystem impacts that consider the effect of sea level rise on vulnerable coastal species and associated habitat; and (3) societal impacts that consider the effect that sea level rise has on the human-built environment.
