The Introduction of the Special Issue

The dynamics of tropical estuaries and seas are driven by diverse environmental factors from local to global scales. Such factors when acting on coastal regions have been changing coastal morphology , bio-geochemtry cycling and create abrupt changes. These changes have been creating coastal disasters including erosion, biodiversity, deal on coastal management  and restoration. These processes give an opportunity to new ways of thinking, scientific developments, innovative technology in tropical regions and worldwide.
