Nearly 100 of the most scientifically important sites have been selected for the GCR to represent the range and variety of the geomorphology of our coastline. Each chapter includes contextual descriptions of the landforms and interpretation of dynamics of the geomorphological systems operating within the sites are given. Chapters are arranged thematically rather than geographically to help draw out the similarities and differences of related systems, including hard-rock and soft-rock cliff coasts, gravel and sandy beaches, sand dunes, machair and saltmarshes. The volume is the first to highlight both the conservation value of the coastal geomorphology sites of Great Britain and the important role these sites play in the development of the science of geomorphology.
