Item #d93may69

Sea-Level Rise and Coastal Management Policies in the United States (ENR92-12), B. Noble, 1992, $5. Discussion paper from Resources for the Future--Publications, 1616 P St. NW, Washington DC 20036 (202-328-5086).

Reviews coastal development policies and assesses how these policies, and the decisions that result from them, support or undermine efforts to deal effectively and responsibly with a possible sea level rise.

Item #d93may70

Sea Level Rise in the U.K., Aug. 1992. Contact Friends of the Earth-U.K., 26-28 Underwood St., London N1 7JQ, U.K. (fax: 071-490-0881).

Conducted by the University of East Anglia, this study combined sea level projections of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change with sea level data from 25 sites around Britain. Flood frequency is expected to increase significantly in coastal areas; several towns could experience annual floods by the end of the next century. A policy of prevention rather than adaptation is needed.

Item #d93may71

Coastal Zone Protection: English Nature's Rationale, Objectives and Practical Recommendations, Oct. 1992. Contact English Nature, Northminster Hse., Peterborough PE1 1UA, UK.

English Nature has begun the first experiment in the managed "retreat" of Britain's coastline, in the salt marshes of Essex. The responses being considered by Essex, where sinking land is causing 3-5 centimeter increases in tide levels each year, must be considered by other coastal communities because of expected rise from global warming. (See New Scientist article, p. 5, Oct. 17, 1992.)

Item #d93may72

Global Climate Change and the Rising Challenge of the Sea, report of the IPCC Coastal Zone Management Subgroup, 1992. Contact Ministry of Transport, Public Works & Water Mgmt., POB 20907, 2500 EX The Hague, Neth.
