Mediterranean Coastal Pollution focuses on scientific and technical information on the progress of measures and initiatives relative to the control of pollution in the Mediterranean. The book commences by pointing to the Mediterranean Action Plan. Particularly given consideration are the related legislation, the environmental assessment and management components of the plan, and present stage of the plan. The book also discusses the remedies and initiatives that need to be undertaken in the event of marine accidents. The methods to measure the quantity of pollutants in water is also discussed. The text also presents experiments and studies that focus on the control of the effects of hazardous chemicals on coastal waters. Marine studies and research on coastal waters are discussed, and the trends, methodologies, and recommendations are outlined to support the findings. Sewage treatment and proper disposal methods of hazardous substances on coastal waters are also discussed. Comparisons are then made between conventional sewage treatment processes and new processes. The book is a valuable source of data for scholars and readers who are interested in mitigating the effects of pollution on coastal waters.
