Part of the Ecological Studies book series (ECOLSTUD, volume 197)

Coastal waters surround, on the one hand, seas and oceans, while on the other they form transitional zones between inner coastal waters and offshore regions. With respect to hydrology, basic differences exist between the coastal waters of the North Sea and those of the Baltic Sea. Geographically, the two sets of coastal waters can be defined thus:
