2 Ecology of the tropics Market reality delivered two sets of requirements specific to developing and operating a resort in the tropics: one concerning comfort as such, and another related to the manner and costs of providing energy to drive necessary comfort devices. The latter issue, while being a matter of concern for tourist operators, is most important when consequences for the natural environment and long-term viability of the industry are at stake. The uniqueness of this environment calls for preserving the tropical coast, by somehow combining the heritage values of tropical ecosystems with tourist developments and long-established patterns of land use with newly introduced functions.
Design problems, which the tropical coasts pose, are different from those found away from the sea. Among the more prominent climatic features of the coast, there are local sea to land (in the morning) and land to sea (in the evening) breezes. 11 Calculation of the ‘sea factor’. per second. That makes them eminently suitable for cooling purposes. Breeze/wind speeds usually follow a distinct diurnal pattern: after calm nights they slowly pick up shortly after dawn, reaching a peak in the mid-afternoon, with moderate but weakening breezes continuing into the evening.
