Hinrichsen, D. (n.d.). The Coastal Population Explosion. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Humankind is in the process of annihilating coastal and ocean ecosystems. At the root of the problem are burgeoning human numbers and their ever-growing needs. Population distribution is increasingly skewed. Recent studies have shown that the overwhelming bulk of humanity is concentrated along or near coasts on just 10% of the earth?s land surface. As of 1998, over half the population of the planet--about 3.2 billion people--lives and works in a coastal strip just 200 kilometers wide (120 miles), while a full two-thirds, 4 billion, are found within 400 kilometers of a coast.
