Spatial Analysis of Coastal Environments

Book


Abstract


  • At the convergence of the land and sea, coastal environments are some of the most

    dynamic and populated places on Earth. This book explains how the many varied

    forms of spatial analysis, including mapping, monitoring and modelling, can be

    applied to a range of coastal environments, such as estuaries, mangroves, seagrass

    beds and coral reefs. Presenting approaches to modelling, which draw on recent developments

    in remote sensing technology, geographical information science and spatial

    statistics, it provides the analytical tools to map, monitor and explain or predict coastal

    features. With detailed case studies and accompanying online practical exercises, it is

    an ideal resource for undergraduate courses in spatial science. Taking a broad view of

    spatial analysis and covering basic and advanced analytical areas such as spatial data

    and geostatistics, it is also a useful reference for ecologists, geomorphologists, geographers

    and modellers interested in understanding coastal environments.
