Interdisciplinary information and viewpoints on coastal zone management and ocean resources issues related to use, protection, and development are presented.

These topics are discussed in relation to waste management and the ocean, coastal dune ecosystems, waterfront access, fishery management, wetlands and endangered species habitats, ocean water pollution, sea level changes, port and harbor facilities, and coastal barriers. The Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972 is given considerable attention. Political and regulatory issues and conflict resolution are discussed in theory and presented in case studies.
