The shoreline is a rapidly changing interface between the land and the sea where much of the worlds population lives. Coasts are under threat from a variety of natural and anthropogenic impacts, such as climate or sea-level change.

This book assessesMoreThe shoreline is a rapidly changing interface between the land and the sea where much of the worlds population lives. Coasts are under threat from a variety of natural and anthropogenic impacts, such as climate or sea-level change. This book assesses how coastlines change and how they have evolved over the last few thousand years.It introduces some of the latest concepts in coastal morphodynamics, recognising that coasts develop through co-adjustment of process and form.

Particular types of coast, such as deltas, estuaries, reefs, lagoons and polar coasts, are examined in detail with conceptual models developed on the basis of well-studied examples. Coastal Evolution is written for undergraduates who are studying coastal geomorphology, geologists who are mapping coastal sedimentary sequences, and environmental scientists, engineers, planners and coastal managers who need to understand the natural processes of change which occur on shorelines.
