Liu, W. and Cao, Z., 2018. Positive role of marine tourism on economic stimulus in coastal area. In: Liu, Z.L. and Mi, C. (eds.), Advances in Sustainable Port and Ocean Engineering. Journal of Coastal Research, Special Issue No. 83, pp. 217–220. Coconut Creek (Florida), ISSN 0749-0208.
A new analysis model of simulative effect of marine tourism for economy in coastal area was proposed. This model used the grey relational method to quantitatively analyze the correlation between marine tourism and economic industry in coastal areas according to the marine tourism economic impact theory. The Grainger causality test strategy was introduced in the empirical analysis. The research shows that the stimulating effect of marine tourism on the economic development in coastal areas is obvious, the proposed model has high precision of analysis on stimulating effect.
