Author of "Deltas and Humans: A Long Relationship Now Threatened by Global Change"

Humans have had a long relationship with the ebb and flow of tides on river deltas around the world. This book provides information on the historical relationship between humans and deltas that will hopefully encourage immediate preparation for coastal management plans in response to the impending inundation of major cities, as a result of global change around the world.
