Han, J., 2018. Carrying capacity of low carbon tourism environment in coastal areas from the perspective of ecological efficiency. In: Liu, Z.L. and Mi, C. (eds.), Advances in Sustainable Port and Ocean Engineering. Journal of Coastal Research, Special Issue No. 83, pp. 199–203. Coconut Creek (Florida), ISSN 0749-0208.

The carrying capacity of tourism environment integrates the comprehensive factors such as social economy, resource ecology, etc., and becomes an important index to measure the quality of tourism environment and the sustainable development of tourism. Based on the ecological perspective, the carrying capacity of low-carbon tourism environment in coastal areas is studies in this paper. The state space method is used to describe and measure the carrying capacity and bearing status of low-carbon tourism environment. A model of carrying capacity of low-carbon tourism environment is constructed and the low-carbon tourism environment is quantified. The idea of “Economic benefit of tourism scale” is as the objective function, and the limitation of resources and eco-environmental factors is as the restraint to establish a linear programming model for carrying capacity of low-carbon tourism environment, and fulfill the research of carrying capacity of low-carbon tourism environment in coastal areas from the perspective of ecological efficiency. Taking Shandong Peninsula Group and Sanya City as an example, the carrying capacity of low-carbon tourism environment in coastal areas is studied.
