This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Extremely vulnerable to flooding, erosion, and silting of ports, urbanized deltas must respond to the increasing imbalances caused by climate change. Part of the Delta Urbanism research program at Delft University of Technology, this important and informative publication addresses the many challenges facing the world's coastal cities and deltaic regions. Eight international urban deltas--the Parana Delta in Argentina, Mekong Delta in Vietnam, the Rhine-Meuse-Scheldt Delta in the Netherlands, Germany's Elbe Estuary and Portugal's Tagus Estuary, the Venetian Lagoon in Italy and Galveston Bay and the Mississippi River Delta in the USA--are compared using GIS (Geographic Information Systems) maps and discussed by an international group of urban researchers and designers. In this compendium, they examine the societal developments and climate issues that lead to conflicting land use claims and offer proposals for ways to enhance the adaptability of these vital regions towards their long-term survival.
