This book does not invent the wheel but merely put together sets of updated but concise material on Physical Geology with lots of illustrations. Useful for consolidating learning, these are found at the end of each major section of every chapter. Later chapters explore fluvial deltas, estuaries, beaches and barriers, coastal sand dunes and geologically-influenced coasts such as cliffs, coral reefs and atolls. Fully illustrated throughout, each chapter contains boxed sections designed to aid further study by providing either a further analysis or treatment of a particular issue, an interesting application of a principle just discussed in the body of the text, or a virtual field trip.

An Introduction to Coastal Processes and Geomorphology by Gerhard Masselink

an introduction to coastal processes and geomorphology hodder arnold publication

Introduction to Coastal Processes and Geomorphology begins by addressing generic concepts, global issues and processes that are common to most coastal environments including the morphodynamic paradigm, Quaternary sea-level fluctuations, tides, waves and sediment transport processes. The coastlines of the world provide 'natural laboratories' for investigating the physical, chemical and biological processes that produce the rich diversity of coastal landforms. Progress in Physical Geography Read more. Coastal environments are arguably the most important and intensely used of all areas settled by humans. It is a book that merits return and is to be recommended as a reference to have on hand for anyone dealing with coastal geomorphology.

The final chapter considers the issue of coastal management, and in particular the management of coastal erosion. Thisincludes resources for the lecturer and student to assist teaching and further explore topics covered in the main text. The coastlines of the world provide 'natural laboratories' for investigating the physical, chemical and biological processes that produce the rich diversity of coastal landforms. This new book is an introduction to the environments and and processes that occur along the world's coastline. Also new to this second edition is a chapter on future coasts which considers the wider effects of coastal change on other important aspects of coastal systems, including ecology, management, socio-cultural activities, built and natural heritage, and archaeology.

This rapid development applies both to the form of the coastline and to coastal processes. A new chapter addresses the forward-facing aspect of coastal morphodynamics, including the ways in which coasts respond to rapid climate changes such as present day global warming. The book is split into five parts, each with a part opener describing the main themes and links between the chapters within that part.

It is intended for students looking to extend their analytical skills and interest in coastal morphodynamics. Fully illustrated throughout, each chapter contains boxed sections designed to aid further study by providing either a further analysis or treatment of a particular issue, an interesting application of a principle just discussed in the body of the text, or a virtual field trip. The book draws on examples from every continent, including Antarctica, and features a superb range of maps and illustrations. The final chapter considers the issue of coastal management, and in particular the management of coastal erosion. Later chapters address the morphodynamics of the five main types of coastal environments, namely fluvial-, tide-, and wave-dominated environments, rocky coasts, and coral reefs and islands. Such analyses provide the basis for a realistic prediction of the kinds of environmental responses that might be expected, for example, during future changes in climate or land-use. Der Roman von Norman Maclean wurde überaus erfolgreich von Robert Redford verfilmt.
