Estuarine Water Quality Management: Planning, Organizing, Monitoring and Modelling

  • Neil S. Grigg
Part of the Coastal and Estuarine Studies book series (COASTAL, volume 36)


The value of estuaries is well known, but managing their water quality faces obstacles due to scientific and political complexity. Unique action plans, based on good science, are required for each estuary. Effective water quality monitoring and modelling programs can help.
