9780198233534: Coastal Dynamics and Landforms

This is a comprehensive reference text for senior undergraduates, graduate students, and instructors and working professionals in the coastal field. It provides a thorough survey of our present state of geomorphological knowledge across a very broad spectrum of coastal types, including topics, such as the form and processes operating on cold coasts, deltas, cohesive cold coasts, and coral reefs, that have rarely been included in general coastal texts. There is also a detailed discussion of the nature, origin, and transport of beach sediment, and the possible effects of future sea-level changes on coastal environments. Anthropological influences and managerial implications are discussed in several of the chapters. All the material draws upon up-to-date research and scientific findings.
