This volume includes a host of methods for retaining sediment on the coastal areas where it is required. Examples of stabilization methods are taken from many countries, but the emphasis is on oceanic margins, headland control, erosion prevention and other defence measures. The future direction of coastal engineering is explored and a variety of coastal defence techniques are discussed. Also included are analyses of waves, beach processes, headland control, effects of maritime structures, alternatives to normal breakwaters and by-passing mechanisms.
