Coastal zones exemplify the environmental pressures we face: their beauty attracts settlement, they offer potential for diverse economic activities, and they are sensitive natural habitats for important species, as well as providing a range of ecosystem services. They are also extremely vulnerable to the vicissitudes of climate change, which include rising sea levels and changes in extreme events such as storms. With large populations living in coastal and estuarine cities facing the ongoing threat of inundation, coordinated management is essential, especially as coastal zones form a linked system in which piecemeal, uncoordinated management could be counterproductive.

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Coastal and Estuarine Studies, Volume 40. In establishing the peculiar niche of a volume of conference proceedings within the scientific literature, the editor has a responsibility (beyond the culling and processing) to inform readers of the background to the conference, the subject areas and specific foci. More tentatively, underlying directions and common themes should be discerned to perhaps indicate areas of research likely to be fruitful and topical in the next few years. Since many readers will only study selected contributions, the volume is divided into five sections namely:- II. Baroclinic Dynamics; III. Circulation; IV. Sediment Dynamics; V. Sediment Modelling; VI. Applied Studies. This introduction incorporates sub-titles to facilitate the same selectivity.
