Environmental Changes on the Coasts of Indonesia

by Eric C.F. Bird and Otto S.R. Ongkosongo

Indonesia, with 14,700 islands and 60,000 km of coastline, presents a tremendous diversity of coastal features. This study draws together previously published work and the authors' own observations to give an overview of the tectonic, volcanic, hydrographic, and organic processes at work-with emphasis on human impact and on areas of most rapid change, primarily deltas and mangroves-and makes recommendations for future research.
