Coastal and Beach Erosion: Processes, Adaptation Strategies and Environmental Impacts


Dianna Barnes (Editor)

Series: Coastal and Oceanic Landforms, Development and Management
BISAC: SCI052000

The coastal environment is a dynamic system in which natural and human processes combine and interact, modifying geomorphological, physical and biological features, and in which beaches represent the most vulnerable areas. Coastal erosion is caused by many different processes like changes in prevailing wind direction, coastal currents, re-establishment of a new equilibrium profile, sea level rise, sea level fall, exceptional storms, hurricanes/cyclones, and tsunami events. This book discusses the processes, adaptation strategies and environmental impacts of coastal and beach erosion. (Imprint: Nova)
