About this book

Includes chapters on the research issues of muddy coasts, the definition of muddy coasts, sea level rise effects on muddy coasts, fundamental dynamic processes effecting muddy coast formation, the role of mangrove and salt marsh vegetation, bio-geochemistry of muddy coast deposits, storm surge effects on muddy coasts, human impacts on muddy coasts, and a detailed geographical review of muddy coasts of the world.

R. Soulsby ...The authors and editors have produced a masterly, authoritative and usable work. They amply cover the subject matter of the title, both with a balanced coverage of the world, and with a comprehensive overview of processes, deposits and functions - plus much more besides. ...I heartily recommend this book to all those who deal with muddy coasts, whether as researchers, managers, or members of conservation bodies and interest groups. Journal of Coastal Relations J.A.G. Cooper ...this is a good reference work for any researcher interested in muddy shorelines. The Holocene
