Coastal Dunes Form and Process Edited by Karl F. Nordstrom Norbert Psuty Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey 08903, USA and Bill Carter Department of Environmental Studies, University of Ulster, Coleraine, Co. Londonderry, BT52 1SA, Northern Ireland Coastal Morphology and Research Series Series Editor: Eric C. F. Bird This book deals with the formation and establishment of coastal dunes--considering both forms and processes in a wide variety of environments. These landforms are among the most sensitive to environmental change, yet they provide extensive protection against both short-term erosion and flooding and long-term sea-level rise. Until now, there has not been any major book to deal specifically with coastal dunes. The current volume surveys a range of dune features, such as the ephemeral characteristics in the rapidly subsiding Mississippi delta, the extensive sand sheets of Australia and South Africa and the Holocene dunes of Western Europe and North America. This book will provide essential background information for ecological and management studies of coastal dunes. It will be of immense value to geomorphologists, ecologists and other environmental scientists who work on the management of coastal dunes.

From the Publisher:

This collection of papers reflects the state of science in the broad field of coastal dune geomorphology, ranging from studies of aeolian processes and sand movement to the nature and sources of dune sediments, dune morphologies and their morphodynamics, and the role of soil and vegetation in the evolution of coastal dune landscapes. The twenty-two contributions investigate a variety of coastal environments from around the world--Australia, Britain, United States, Canada, Israel, Japan, Poland and South Africa--to provide a comprehensive understanding of dune morphodynamics. An invaluable resource for specialists and students of dune geomorphology and to all those concerned with management, planning and development issues in coastal dune areas.
