This undergraduate textbook is organized into four parts: An overview of coastal engineering, using case studies to illustrate problems; Hydrodynamics of the coastal zone, reviewing storm surges, water waves, and low frequency motions within the nearshore and surf zone; Coastal responses including equilibrium beach profiles and sediment transport; and Applications such as erosion mitigation, beach nourishment, coastal armoring, tidal inlets, and shoreline management.
'The book's presentation is of high standard. It can be utilized as a textbook on coastal processes and coastal engineering. The authors, who have devoted a lot of time in conducting research in coastal engineering, deserve to be congratulated on their achievement.' Bulletin '... this book is useful in providing a mathematical summary of our understanding of hydrodynamic and sediment transport processes in the coastal zone and how they may be affected by engineering applications.'
