Abstract

Les recherches entreprises au cours de nombreuses missions organisées par le Centre d’expérimentation du Pacifique visaient principalement à améliorer nos connaissances des espèces animales et de la couverture végétale des îles des atolls de la Polynésie française. Les résultats de ces travaux ont été réunis ici avec simplicité, clarté et de nombreuses illustrations par les chercheurs eux-mêmes, à l’intention du grand public. Un guide précieux et maniable pour celui qui, de près ou de loin, s...

Abstract

This Special Issue presents the work of 30 scientists from 11 countries. It confirms that the impacts of global change, resulting from both climate change and increasing anthropogenic pressure, are huge on worldwide coastal areas (and critically so on some islands in the Pacific Ocean), with highly negative effects on coastal groundwater resources, which are widely affected by seawater intrusion. Some improved research methods are proposed in the contributions: using innovative hydrogeological, geophysical, and geochemical monitoring; assessing impacts of the changing environment on the coastal groundwater resources in terms of quantity and quality; and using modelling, especially to improve management approaches. The scientific research needed to face these challenges must continue to be deployed by different approaches based on the monitoring, modelling and management of groundwater resources. Novel and more efficient methods must be developed to keep up with the accelerating pace of global change.
