Coastal Evolution: Late Quaternary Shoreline Morphodynamics by R. W. G. Carter, C. D. Woodroffe, Orson van de Plassche

By R. W. G. Carter, C. D. Woodroffe, Orson van de Plassche

This publication assesses how coastlines swap and the way they've got advanced over the last few thousand years. It introduces the various most modern innovations in coastal morphodynamics, spotting that coasts improve via co-adjustment of strategy and shape. The authors learn certain types of coasts--deltas, estuaries, reefs, lagoons and polar coasts--in element with conceptual types built at the foundation of well-studied examples. as well as being a textual content for graduate-level scholars, this can be a finished resource for geologists, engineers, environmental scientists, planners and coastal managers.
