Description - Watersheds, Bays, and Bounded Seas by Edward R. Urban
Some of the world's most important bodies of water, from the Black Sea to the Bay of Bengal, are classified as 'semi-enclosed marine systems' (SEMS). Separated from the open seas by a strait, island archipelago, or physical process, SEMS are particularly vulnerable to environmental damage and particularly difficult to fully understand and manage.
Watersheds, Bays, and Bounded Seas provides state-of-the-science information about these
complex systems and identifies best management practices to preserve them.
