About this book

Outlines the latest concepts in terms of deposition and erosion of shorelines and their dynamics over the last Ice Age, and also examines how conceptual models can be extended to include shorelines modified by human influence.

Media reviews
'The editors and authors have done an excellent job of putting together a book that covers many aspects of coastal geomorphological evolution over the time scale of the late Quaternary ! well written, well illustrated and very readable ! a valuable addition to the coastal literature. It could serve as a textbook for undergraduate or graduate level courses in coastal geology or geomorphology. In fact, it will be required reading for my graduate courses on 'Coastal Morphodynamics' and 'Quaternary Evolution of Coastal Environments'.' Sedimentary Geology 'The fact that this volume works very effectively is a tribute to the individual authors and editors ! In terms of the intended aims, scope and market, this book hits the mark. I am convinced it will be used widely as a reference for undergraduate courses on coastal environments.' Andrew J. Plater, Geoscientist '! a good overview of the development of concepts and the present state of research ! it will be of much use both for the teacher and student of coastal change.' J. Ehlers, Marine Geology 'I strongly recommend this book to all coastal students and researchers!a coherent volume'. M.J.Shepard, Institute of Australian Geographers. 'This multi-authored text, the author numbers reflecting the complexity and scale of the subject now, presents an exciting and innovative view of coastal science in the 1990s.' Journal of Quaternary Science 'The overall quality of the writing and editing is very good. In fact the whole book is excellent in concept and in execution. It will serve as the latest and the last word on the subject for years to come. Highly recommended for all geologists and other environmental scientists, together with engineers, planners and others involved in any way with coastal processes.' Choice 'I strongly recommend this book to all coastal students and researchers ! a coherent volume ! '. M. J. Shepherd, Institute of Australian Geographers
