Initial report on coastal state indicators

Initial Report on Coastal State Indicators.
This report describes coastal management issues experienced by national-scale coastal managers in Italy, Spain, the Netherlands and the UK. The report addresses the communication problems that are frequently experienced between coastal scientists and managers. The main problem being that the information provided by scientists is often too complex and in an inappropriate form to provide a useful basis for management decisions. These are the results of an initial workshop held in Egmond, NL that was designed to encourage dialog between coastal managers and scientist. The managers were responsible for defining key coastal zone management issues whilst the scientists were charged with offering potential solutions for investigation within the framework of the CoastView project. These solutions were in the form of a simplified set of coastal state indicators that had direct relevance to the fields of navigation, coastal protection, recreation and tourism and ecosystem protection. It is the intention that these coastal state indicators will be derived from coastal video monitoring systems. This is an initial report that will be updated at the end of the CoastView project.
