Description

New Trends in Port Environmental Management and Operations, Volume Two describes the general use of environmental management tools, including specific details in hydrodynamic models and operational oceanographic systems used in ports. The book provides a clear introduction to the field, with useful insights into a number of aspects of environmental management tools. This reduction of pollution is achieved through the implementation of direct regulations, requiring a set of environmental tools and innovative management initiatives that take into account flexibility for complying with environmental regulations for public credibility, reliability, port competitiveness and environmental performance.
