Synopsis: Marine and coastal applications of GIS are finally gaining wide acceptance in scientific as well as GIS communities, and cover the fields of deep sea geology, chemistry and biology, and coastal geology, biology, engineering and resource management. Comprising rigorous contributions from a group of leading scholars in marine and coastal GIS, this book will inspire and stimulate continued research in this important new application domain.
Launched as a project to mark the UN International Year of the Ocean (1998) and supported by the International Geographical Union's Commission on Coastal Systems, this book covers progress and research in the marine and coastal realms, in the areas of theory, applications and empirical results. It is the first book of its kind to address basic and applied scientific problems in deep sea and coastal science using GIS and remote sensing technologies. It is designed for GIS and remote sensing specialists, but also for those with an interest in oceans, lakes and shores. Coverage ranges from seafloor spreading centres to Exclusive Economic Zones to microscale coastal habitats; and techniques include submersibles, computer modelling, image display, 3-D temporal data visualization, and development and application of new algorithms and spatial data structures. It illustrates the broad usage of GIS, image processing, and computer modelling in deep sea and coastal environments, and also addresses important institutional issues arising out of the use of these technologies.
About the Author: Dawn first encountered GIS in the early 1990s while working on her Ph.D. at the University of California at Santa Barbara. She became acutely aware of the challenges of applying GIS to deep marine environments when presented with the first such data set collected from the deepsea vehicle Argo I, a few years after it was used to discover the wreck of the Titanic. Dawn has been on the faculty of the Department of Geosciences at Oregon State University since 1995. She has completed oceanographic fieldwork in some of the most geologically active regions of the planet, including the East Pacific Rise, the Mid- Atlantic Ridge, the Juan de Fuca Ridge, the Tonga Trench, and volcanoes under theJapan Sea and Indian Ocean. Her research interests include application and analytical issues in GIS for oceanographic data, particularly data conversion, management, and metadata; the relationships between volcanic, hydrothermal, and tectonic processes at seafloor-spreading centres; the analysis and interpretation of data from deepsea mapping systems; and the geography of Cyberspace.
Darius first encountered GIS in the early 1980s, while at Edinburgh University, and became aware of the challenges of applying it to the coast while working for Bill Carter at the University of Ulster in 1987-'88. He has been lecturer in GIS at University College Cork since 1989. For many years he was co-ordinator of the project on Coastal GIS for the International Geographical Union's Commission on Coastal Systems; and, with Ron Furness, he was one of the founding organisers of the CoastGIS series of biannual conferences.
