The magnitude and threat of marine and estuarine pollution becomes more and more acute everyday with the growing use of sea for commerce, the increasing size and variety of cargo ships and tankers, and also the use of seabed for mineral extraction.

This book critically analyzes the water quality in the lower Gangetic delta, and examines the environmental conditions and physical processes operating in this rich ecosystem. Readers with an interest in environmental science, geography, oceanography, marine biology, environmental biology, aquatic pollution and ecology will find the research.

Coastal and Estuarine Management examines the issues surrounding the human use and abuse of estuarine and coastal environments.

This volume presents the papers given at the meeting "Estuarine Management and Quality Assessment" held at Trinity College, Dublin in September The meeting was organised by the Environmental Sci­ ences Unit, TCD and the Estuarine and Brackish-Water Sciences Associ­ ation and was attended by. In practice, marine pollution is often essentially estuarine pollution.

To reflect the huge impact of humans on estuaries, and to consider how we may either modify, remove or enrich the estuarine ecosystem, three completely new chapters have been prepared in this edition.
