ResMar book on Coastal Erosion Monitoring published

04.10.2013

In the frame of the ResMar project results, including sharing and acting sustainable management models, a book entitled “Coastal Erosion Monitoring - A Network of Regional Observatories” was published. The book is the natural sequel to previous results on Beach erosion monitoring published in 2008 within a BEACHMED-e project. The publication of this book is contemporary with the official signing ceremony of the latest version of the Bologna Charter (BC 2012) one of its main objectives being establishing a network of existing coastal observatories. One of the key aims of this book is to underline the importance of monitoring and networks aimed at a proactive and adaptive defence strategy for a resilient coastal zone, as stated in Article 16 of the ICZM Protocol.

The author of the book hopes that this book may present a “good practice” enabling to share knowledge with scientific and civil communities and increase our knowledge of the state of the coastal zone for a better and wiser use of the territory in the future.
