Detailed item info

This is the study of estuaries and coasts has seen ermous growth in recent years, since changes in these areas have a large effect on the food chain, as well as on the physics and chemistry of the ocean. As the coasts and river banks around the world become more densely populated, the pressure on these ecosystems intensifies, putting a new focus on environmental, socio-ecomic and policy issues. Written by a team of international expert scientists, under the guidance of Chief Editors Eric Wolanski and Donald McClusky, the Treatise on Estuarine and Coastal Science examines topics in depth, and aims to provide a comprehensive scientific resource for all professionals and students in the area of estuarine and coastal science. Most up-to-date reference for system-based coastal and estuarine science and management, from the inland watershed to the ocean shelf. Chief editors have assembled a world-class team of volume editors and contributing authors. It offers an approach that focuses on the physical, biological, chemistry, ecosystem, human, ecological and ecomics processes, to show how to best use multidisciplinary science to ensure earth's sustainability. It provides a comprehensive scientific resource for all professionals and students in the area of estuarine and coastal science. It features up-to-date chapters covering a full range of topics.

Author BiographyDr. Donald McLusky was for many years a Senior Lecturer in Marine Biology at the University of Stirling, Scotland, UK. He also served as the Head of Department and Vice-Dean of the Faculty of Science. He holds a B.Sc. degree in Zoology from the University of Aberdeen and a Ph.D. degree on estuarine eco-physiology from the University of Stirling. Whilst at Stirling his research interests were centred on the biology of the Forth estuary, with many studies of the intertidal fauna including the annelids, molluscs and crustaceans. For over 25 years he was responsible for the monitoring of the effects on the intertidal environment of a large petro-chemical complex at Grangemouth on the Forth. He also studied the impact of two marine oil terminals on the surrounding marine environment. He supervised the Ph.D. programmes of many young estuarine and marine scientists both at Stirling and also in Sri Lanka, Bahrain and Portugal. Away from Stirling University he was a Visiting fellow at the University of Copenhagen's marine laboratory at Helsingor on several occasions, as well as a Visiting Professor at the University of Paris, and Rivers State University, Nigeria. He was the Honorary Secretary of the Estuarine and Coastal Sciences Association (ECSA) and remains their Trustee. He was a member of the Council of the Scottish Marine Biological Association, and a member of the Scientific Advisory Committee of Scottish Natural Heritage. He is the author of over 60 scientific papers on marine, estuarine and freshwater biology. He is the author of the well-established textbook The Estuarine Ecosystem, which is now in its 3rd edition, as well as Ecology of Estuaries, and the editor of several volumes including The Freshwaters of Scotland, North Sea - Estuarine Interactions and The Environment of the Estuary and Firth of Forth. He was the editor of the journal Estuarine and Coastal Shelf Science for 10 years, from 2000. Dr. Eric Wolanski, FTSE, FIE Aust, is a coastal oceanographer and ecohydrologist. His research interests include the oceanography and sediment dynamics of coral reefs, mangroves, and muddy estuaries. They also include the interaction between physical and biological processes determining the ecosystem health in tropical riverine, estuarine and waters. Eric lead the UNESCO-ROSTE estuarine ecohydrology modelling efforts to quantify the impact from farming, dams, irrigation and urbanisation on the ecological services that estuaries provide to humanity. The ecohydrology models that have resulted have been applied to assess the human impact on coral cover in the Great Barrier Reef, Darwin Harbour, coastal waters of Micronesia, and Tanzania savannah ecosystems. Eric has authored more than 330 scientific papers and seven books. He is a fellow of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering, the Institution of Engineers Australia, and l'Academie Royale des Sciences d'Outre-Mer. He was awarded an Australian Centenary medal for services in estuarine and coastal oceanography, a Doctorate Honoris Causa from the Catholic University of Louvain, and a Queensland Information Technology and Telecommunication award for excellence. He is the chief editor of Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science and Wetlands Ecology and Management. He is a member of the editorial board of Journal of Coastal Research, Journal of Marine Systems, Continental Shelf Research, and Ecohydrology and Hydrobiology. He is a member of the Scientific and Policy Committee of IGBP's LOICZ (Land Ocean Interactions in the Coastal Zone) and of EMECS (Japan's-based International Center for Environmental Management of Enclosed Coastal Seas).
