Managing Denmark's Marine Environment

Student thesis: Master thesis (including HD thesis)

  • Alexander John Webster
I have included a foreword in this thesis to give the reader a better understanding of the background behind the research as well as to state my personal aims and expectations. Two years ago, I would never have dreamt of going on exchange or exploring management issues about the Danish marine environment, nonetheless I have done exactly that. Due to the close link between the Geomatic departments, meeting Danish exchange students in Australia and the travel bug, I selected The University of Aalborg. My interest in the topic grew from the existing work being done in my department, the exciting prospect of a relatively new field of research and the chance to apply it to uncharted waters. My personal aim of this thesis was to challenge myself by studying in a different country with an unfamiliar environment and different style of learning. By doing this, I hoped to learn new skills but also enjoy the experience of the journey. My hopes for this thesis are not that it will revolutionise the current Danish marine management system, but perhaps be a small part of it. If this thesis helps give ideas to people or aids future research, then I will be happy.
