Ecological damage compensation for coastal sea area uses
MetadataShow full item record
Rapid economic growth has resulted in significant ecological degradation in many coastal areas in China. Control measures involving Marine Ecological Damage Compensation (MEDC) have been introduced to curb unsustainable development. The study presents a practical framework for developing the MEDC standard. The standard considers spatial variation in ecological services and includes many different types of ocean uses that are common in coastal waters around the world.We illustrate the framework and specific procedures through a case study of Xiamen. Results of our calculation show that damages from many ocean uses to the ecosystems are not adequately compensated under current management regime, and a carefully designed MEDC standard is crucial for sustainable development.

A phase-compensated distorted wave Born approximation representation of the bistatic scattering by weakly scattering objects : application to zooplankton Chu, Dezhang; Ye, Zhen (Acoustical Society of America, 1999-10)The distorted wave Born approximation (DWBA) method has been successfully used in modeling the acoustic backscattering by weakly scattering zooplankton [Stanton et al., J.

Acousto-optic effect compensation for optical determination of the normal velocity distribution associated with acoustic transducer radiation Foote, Kenneth G.; Theobald, Peter D. (Acoustical Society of America, 2015-09-28)The acousto-optic effect, in which an acoustic wave causes variations in the optical index of refraction, imposes a fundamental limitation on the determination of the normal velocity, or normal displacement, distribution ...
Range compensation for backscattering measurements in the difference-frequency nearfield of a parametric sonar Foote, Kenneth G. (Acoustical Society of America, 2012-05)Measurement of acoustic backscattering properties of targets requires removal of the range dependence of echoes. This process is called range compensation. For conventional sonars making measurements in the transducer ...
