Darien News: The Long Island Sound Study announces that the most comprehensive review and synthesis of scientific research of the Long Island Sound in 35 years is now available as a book published by Springer.
“Long Island Sound: Prospects for the Urban Sea” was written by scientists, resource managers and historians, working with the LISS, who gathered nearly 1,500 research papers to summarize what is known about the historic and recent trends of the ecological health of the Sound. Six technical chapters describe the Sound’s human history, geology, physical oceanography, geochemistry, pollutant history, and biology and ecology. A 7th chapter details the cross-cutting issues and the complex interrelationships between different environmental and socio-economic trends to help provide guidance to planners, environmental managers, and policy makers on how to manage coastal waters such as the Sound.
