Dynamic Sedimentary Environment of Mangrove Coasts discusses failures in mangrove restoration, coastal management and weak blue carbon policy due to lack of knowledge in sedimentary systems. The book's editors seamlessly offer a general introduction of mangrove sedimentary dynamics, including surface elevation change. This leads into more in-depth information on soil surface elevation change, sea level rise, and the importance of sedimentary dynamics in the loss or gain of blue carbon. The second half of the book presents connectivity in coastal sedimentary environments (e.g. mangrove degradation, seagrass-coral reef-mangrove connectivity) and concludes by addressing issues on mangrove restoration and sediments.
This book will assist coastal managers and academics in addressing the gaps in mangrove restoration and coastal management. As such, it will be a valuable reference for advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, researchers, academics in the field of coastal restoration, and coastal management practitioners.
