Description:

Marine and coastal applications are finally gaining wide acceptance in scientific as well as GIS communities, and cover the fields of deep sea geology, chemistry and biology, and coastal geology, biology, engineering and resource management. Comprising rigorous contributions from a group of leading scholars in marine and coastal GIS, this book will inspire and stimulate continued research in this important new application domain.Launched as a project to mark the UN International Year of the Ocean (1998), and supported by the International Geographical Union's Commission on Coastal Systems, Marine and Coastal Geographical Information Systems covers progress and research in the marine and coastal relms, in the areas of theory, applications and empirical results. It is the first book of its kind to address basic and applied scientific problems in deep sea and coastal science using GIS and remote sensing technologies. It is designed for GIS and remote sensing specialists, but also for those with an interest in oceans, lakes and shores. Coverage ranges from the seafloor spreading centres to Exclusive Economic Zones to microscale coastal habitats; and techniques included in submersibles, computer modelling, image display, 3-D temporal data visualisation, and development and application of new algorithms and spatial data structures. It illustrates the broad usage of GIS, image processing, and computer modelling in deep sea and coastalenvironments, and also addresses important institutional issues arising out of the use of these technologies.
