Dynamic Sedimentary Environments of Mangrove Coasts provides knowledge on the importance of sedimentary dynamics in managing mangrove forests. In the first part of the book, the editors seamlessly offer a general introduction of mangrove sedimentary dynamics. This leads into more in-depth information on soil surface elevation change, sea level rise, and the importance of sedimentary dynamics in the loss or gain of blue carbon. The book concludes the discussion of mangrove sedimentary dynamics by addressing the issues of climate change (e.g. sea level rise and blue carbon) on mangrove restoration and sediment.

This book will assist coastal managers and academics in addressing the gaps in mangrove restoration and coastal management. As such, it will be a valuable reference for advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, researchers, academics in the field of coastal restoration, and coastal management practitioners.

Key Features

    • Provides a state-of-the-art summary of research into sedimentary dynamics in mangrove forests
    • Includes updates on issues of climate change-relevant to mangroves, such as blue carbon and sea level rise
    • Presents scientific background and successful case studies for mangrove restoration that can solve problems relating to mangrove management


  • The primary market is advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, researchers, academics and coastal management practitioners.
  • The secondary market is the decision makers including NGOs, Development Partners and general reading public with limited natural resource background as it is designed with case studies and current issues
