Our global is consistently altering, ruled by way of continuity, dynamic interactions and boundary stipulations. for plenty of coasts, the typical denominators contributing to those alterations are sand, waves, tides, salt gradients, and human interplay, all subject matters which are handled during this helpful textbook.

Confining itself to necessities, the assurance displays centuries of theoretical and functional wisdom of Dutch coastal engineers. Focussing, the place appropriate, on linear concept, the ebook indicates how the necessities of neighborhood coastal habit will be reproduced and predicted.
