Landsat Computer Compatible Tapes for the years 1972-73 and 1976-77 were used as the data base for a quantitative assessment of morphological changes along the coastline of Bangladesh. The study was extended for the periods 1972-73 and 1979 where...

The mobile mud banks, several kilometres wide and about 30 km long, which form the sedimentary environment of the coast of the Guianas are a consequence of the huge particulate discharge of the Amazon. These mud banks shift towards the northwest,...

Mangrove forests are found throughout the tropics and occur as dense forests along calm tropical coastlines. They are an important coastal resource, providing a barrier to hurricane storm surge and tsunami inundation and serving as a nursery and p...

The need for high resolution maps in the management of tropical environments is increasing and emphasized by the rapid anthropogenic development often occurring in coastal zones. In areas subject to humid tropical climate, such as the West Indies,...
