Contents:
pte.1. Processes and problems: -- 1. Global sea-level rise: past and future -- 2. Land subsidence in coastal lowlands -- 3. River-sediment inputs to major deltas -- 4. Coastal erosion and rising sea-level -- pte.2. Case studies: -- 5. Land subsidence in Bangkok 1978-1988 -- 6. Coastal erosion in the Gulf in Thailand -- 7. Nature of sediment load in the ganges Brahmaputra river system in India -- 8. Subsidence of the Ganges-Brahmaputra delta of Bangladesh and associated drainage sedimentation and salinity problems -- 9. Tectonic, eustatic and isostatic changes along th Indian coast -- 10. Effect of sea level-rise and human activity on the Yangtze Delta, China -- 11. Rising sea-level and subsidence of the Northern Nile Delta: a case study -- 12. Land subsidence and sea-level rise: the case of the Po Delta Region, Italy -- 13. the Niger delta and sea-level rise -- 14. Sea-level rise and the stability Barrier Islands, with special reference to the Wadden Sea -- 15. Subsidence, sea-level rise, and wetlandloss in the lower Mississippi river deltal -- pte.3. Strategies: -- 16. Economizing human responses to subsidence and rising sea level -- 17. Man-made projects and relative sea-level rise -- 18. Impact of sea level rise on flood control in Bangkok and vicinity
Summary: This volume explores the concepts of sea-level rise and coastal subsidence, both natural and anthropogenically accelerated, in the form of a series of case studies in such diverse locations as Bangkok, Bangladesh, Venice, and the Niger and Mississippi deltas, as well as a discussion of the economic, engineering and policy responses that must be considered if the effects of local sea-level rise are to be mitigated.
