Media reviews
'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.'
