MetadataShow full item record
Being a national institute dedicated to the study of ocean sciences, National Institute of Oceanography (NIO), Dona Paula, Goa, India owes it to the country to disseminate knowledge generated by its scientists for the betterment of society. It also bears the responsibility of creating awareness among our people about the environmental consequences of human activity, and inspiring a new generation of researchers to undertake research in marine systems. To encourage research on other estuaries of India, often home to large human settlements, it was felt that a summary of what is known about the Mandovi and Zuari estuaries would be most helpful. It was also felt that the summary be written in a manner that would appeal to both professionals and amateurs, especially environmental managers and those with special concerns for the environment. This book has been put together to fulfill these and other needs, particularly in the light of the immense environmental pressures our country will face as its economy continues to grow.
