The current research on coastal mining revealed that there are 120 journals, 170 conferences and 40 workshops and about 366282 articles are being published on the current trends in coastal mining. In terms of research annually, USA, India, Japan, Brazil and Canada are some of the leading countries where maximum studies related to coastal mining are being carried out. Coastal mining contributes to the construction of buildings and development. However, the negative effects of coastal mining include the permanent loss of sand in areas, as well as major habitat destruction.
Coastal mining is a practice that is used to extract sand, mainly through an open pit. However, coastal is also mined from beaches, inland dunes and dredged from ocean beds and river beds. It is often used in manufacturing as an abrasive, for example and it is used to make concrete. It is also used in cold regions to put on the roads by municipal plow trucks to help icy and snowy driving conditions, usually mixed with salt or another mixture to raise the freezing temperature of the road surface. Sand dredged from the mouths of rivers can also used to replace eroded coastline.
Journal of Coastal Zone management is an academic journal – hosted by OMICS International – a pioneer in open access publishing–and is listed among the top 10 journals in fishery. Each year research scientists have noticed a rise in the number of congresses being held in this field.
OMICS Group hosts over 400 leading-edge peer reviewed Open Access Journals and organize over 300 International Conferences annually all over the world. OMICS International journals have over 3 million readers and the fame and success of the same can be attributed to the strong editorial board which contains over 30000 eminent personalities that ensure a rapid, quality and quick review process. OMICS Group signed an agreement with more than 500 International Societies to make healthcare information Open Access.
