This volume represents EPA's effort to take stock of scientific advances in research pertaining to the coastal environment since the inception of the Agency and to gauge what progress has been made and what remains to be accomplished. The essays in this volume present a range of perspectives on the subject, from the vantage points of the scientific and technical disciplines which have been carrying out relevant research. The points of view represented are varied and sometimes conflicting. The authors have speculated about emerging problems and research needs.
