SPECIAL PUBLICATION: COASTAL SYSTEMS AND SEA LEVEL RISE

As part of the New Zealand Coastal Society's work to promote and advance knowledge and understanding of the coastal zone, this special publication, which is the fourth in the series, presents an insight as to how our coastal systems have and can be expected to behave in response to past and future sea level rise.

It is intended to complement the existing and rapidly growing knowledge base on climate change impacts, with the aim of conveying that diverse coastal systems behave in different ways, and this needs to be considered and understood by practitioners addressing coastal planning, management and engineering issues. 

Articles include:


- Matauranga Maori and its role in coastal management

- Te tai pari o Aotearoa - Future sea level rise around New Zealands dynamic coastline

- Modelling coastal evolution for rising sea levels

- The response of sandy coastal systems to changes associated with sea level rise

- Estimating the erosional effects of sea level rise on gravel beaches: Case study of the Canterbury coast

- Coastal cliff erosion in Aotearoa New Zealand and the potential impacts of sea level rise

- Coastal hydrosystem responses to sea level rise

- Estuaries and lowland brackish habitats
