9781402086380: Encyclopedia of the World's Coastal Landforms

This unique richly-illustrated account of the landforms and geology of the world’s coasts, presented in a country-by-country (state-by-state) sequence, assembles a vast amount of data and images of an endangered and increasingly populated and developed landform. An international panel of 138 coastal experts provides information on “what is where” on each sector of coast, together with explanations of the landforms, their evolution and the changes taking place on them. As well as providing details on the coastal features of each country (state or county) the compendium can be used to determine the extent of particular features along the world’s coasts and to investigate comparisons and contrasts between various world regions. With more than 1440 color illustrations and photos, it is particularly useful as a source of information prior to researching or just visiting a sector of coast. References are provided to the current literature on coastal evolution and coastline changes.

Review:

From the reviews:

“The encyclopedia is well laid out and easy to use. The pictures are good and there are plenty of references. As well as being a resource for professional geologists and geographers, the editor suggests that it could be used by armchair travellers. ... My interests are in the geography and ecology of coasts, and if I worked in those areas I would find a use for this work. As a resource for coastal scientists I am sure it will be well used.” (John Goodier, Reference Reviews, Vol. 25 (1), 2011)
