This publication is from the AIH 25th Anniversary Meeting & International Conference on "Challenges in Coastal Hydrology and Water Quality". It contains 41 papers in seven sections reflecting various aspects of coastal environment and water quality. Section 1 deals with coastal water pollution which has received considerable attention in recent decades. Section 2 looks at saltwater intrusion which is of fundamental importance for the management of coastal aquifers. Section 3 covers coastal water eutrophication. This subject takes on an added significance in light of growing hypoxia due to nutrient enrichment in the Gulf of Mexico. Section 4 deals with best management practices currently being employed for water quality management. Taken together, these first four sections constitute the building blocks for water quality modeling, which is the subject of Section 5. Extending this discussion further, Section 6 encompasses coastal ecology, wetlands and environment. Section 7 concludes with presenting some of the impacts of hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
