Carbonate Beaches 2000: Proceedings of the First International Symposium on Carbonate Sand Beaches, Held in Key Largo, Florida,
DescripcióThe 27 technical papers contained in this proceedings were presented at the Carbonate Beaches 2000 Conference, which was held December 5-8, 2000, at the Westin Beach Resort in Key Largo, Florida. Carbonate sand beaches are major coastal features in tropical regions of the world and are found in selected locations in temperate regions. These beaches are formed differently than the silicate beaches that are found along many temperate coastlines. Management strategies for carbonate sand beaches may be significantly different than those for silicate or feldspar beaches. The goal of this conference was to produce a comprehensive multi-disciplined exchange of state-of-the-art information on improved management strategies for carbonate sand beaches. Topics include: beach rock; remote sensing; beach nourishment; beach development and biogenic framework; pocket beaches; geotechnical and geologic framework; reef structures and beaches; and coastal processes.
