      California Coastal Trail. California boasts one of the most diverse and spectacular coastlines in the world. Visitors and residents alike are drawn to its sandy beaches, tide pools, dramatic coastal cliffs, densely forested coastal mountains, and large bays. Pacific Coastal cruises may depart Seattle, stop in lovely and historic Astoria, Oregon, and sail south to cosmopolitan San Francisco. Some voyages sail from Los Angeles all the way to Vancouver. These itineraries are very popular due to the staggering amount of nature on display.

      Exploring a selection of current issues in international law as they pertain to South Pacific countries and Antarctica, this volume covers diverse topics including mass refugee flows, transnational crime, international terrorism, freedom of navigation, climate change, international trade agreements and bioprospecting in Antarctica. As well as presenting a critical evaluation of these issues.   The beauty of Norway comes in many forms throughout the year. In winter, the landscape is a bright, snow-layered horizon, dotted with multicolored buildings that appear especially radiant during.

      Coral reefs are unique ecosystems of plants, animals, and their associated geological reefs cover less than percent of the earth's surface, but are home to an estimated 25 percent of all marine species. Second only to tropical rainforests in size and complexity, some scientists estimate that more than one million species of plants and animals are associated with coral reefs. Natural coastal infrastructure provides habitats for a range of biodiversity, forms the backbone for numerous coastal tourism economies—and most importantly—plays a critical role in protecting the mainland from floods and storms. One of the star players in the coastal protection game is the mangrove.
