This volume contains the papers presented at the Sixth International Conference on Environmental Problems in Coastal Regions and includes Oil and Chemical Spill Studies. The high population density in coastal areas has led to many ecological and environmental problems which require effective strategies for their management. It is important to discuss the way in which these issues interact with social and economic pressures to reach integrated solutions. Most coastal areas are subjected to an increased number of problems resulting from the growth of industrial, commercial or tourism activities. This book tries to address some of these concerns. Topics of interest include: Remote Sensing and Prediction; Ecology and the Coastal Environment; Water Quality Issues; Wetlands; Sediment Problems; Coastal Restoration; Atmospheric Aspects and Flooding; Computational Modelling; Erosion Problems; Management of Risk.Emissions (g/hp-h) Notes: [8] Two 9.9 Hp outboards, a 2-stroke Evinrude and a 4- stroke Honda, were tested in a 757 litre test tank of water.
