Abstract

Coastal ecosystems have been subject to unprecedented stresses in recent decades. The main stressors are the increasing human activity in the coastal zone and climate variability and change. The resulting issues are diverse. They include changes in shorelines and near-shore bathymetry, increased coastal flooding, habitat modification, loss of biodiversity, eutrophication, increased probability of harmful algal blooms and chemical contamination, reductions in the abundance of exploitable living marine resources, and public health problems associated with water quality, beach and storm-water pollution and increased seafood contamination. In parallel, there are increasing requirements for monitoring and forecasting of currents and marine parameters in shelf seas, over the shelf slope and beyond, in support of offshore oil industry operations, fish stock management and water quality modelling.
