The Albemarle-Pamlico Estuarine Studyby Douglas N. Rader, NC Dep of Natural Resources &, Community Development, Raleigh, NC, USA,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Coastal Zone '87
The Albemarle-Pamlico Estuarine Study was formulated on the deep need to preserve the long-term productivity of a unique and complex estuarine system. As the traditional way of life in a predominately rural setting continues to change, as resorts replace isolated barrier islands and fringing marshes, we have an unique opportunity to direct the pattern of that development such that coexistence between competing human uses of the system can be maximized. That process depends on the precise understanding of processes mediating those interactions, and on reasonably accurate appraisal of the performance of available management and mitigation strategies.
