About this book

Begins by describing the characteristics of waves and tides, and their behaviour in shallow water. After outlining the sources of sediment supply to the oceans, some theoretical aspects of sediment movement and deposition by currents are considered. After looking at wave action in the littoral zone, the interplay of tidal currents, river flow and wave action in estuaries and deltas are explored. The final chapter provides an overview of shelf processes.

Contents

Waves; tides; an introduction to shallow-water environments and their sediments; sediment movements by waves and currents; beaches and the littoral zone; tidal flats and estuaries; deltas; shelf seas; suggested further reading; answers and comments to questions.
