This book addresses the contemporary problems of the White Sea and its basin, with special emphasis on the interactions between the marine and socio-economic environments. To investigate the impacts of regional and global change, field observations, remote sensing, numerical modeling, and geographic information system (GIS) technologies are used. This book is indeed the first attempt to apply a quantitative, multidisciplinary approach to the assessment of those changes occurring presently and those anticipated in the future to dynamic relationships between the regional socio-economic dimension, global change, and marine ecology. The results presented in this book arise from multiple sources, viz. archival data, contemporary publications and reports, as well as information products obtained using new methods such as satellite remote sensing. GIS. numerical model simulations, and elements of systems analysis. It is this multi-method, multidisciplinary approach that distinguishes this collective work from the previous publications on the White Sea.
