This volume compares several estuarine management strategies and recommends planning guidelines to restore polluted estuaries, prevent further estuarine deterioration, and manage conflicting demands stemming from human activities. The authors base their findings on a survey of estuary authorities worldwide. Chapters also discuss the general geographical characteristics of estuaries and various aspects of water quality. Biologists, civil engineers, ecologists, regional planners, and agriculturists involved with estuarine management will benefit from this work.
