This section briefly discusses shoreline evolution based on the results obtained from a Digital Shoreline Analysis System (DSAS) (Thieler et al., ), using aerial photographs taken between and The images were first processed by geometric correction using a . In this comprehensive book, almost all subjects are discussed relating with the coastal evolution. If you are looking for a source in a geomorphological approach, this one most probably will satisfy you. Author designed his book into four major chapters. The first one consist of an extended introduction part including historical perspectives Cited by: Coastal Evolution - edited by R. W. G. Carter January Introduction. Wave-dominated sedimentary coasts comprise accumulations of detrital sand and gravel-sized material which undergo high levels of physical reworking, interspersed with periods of burial before finally being deposited as the coastal deposits we see today (Davis & Hayes, ). The shoreline is a rapidly changing interface between the land and the sea where much of the worldts population lives. Coasts are under threat from a variety of natural and anthropogenic impacts, such as climate or sea-level change. This book assesses how coastlines change and how they have evolved over the last few thousand introduces some of the latest .

Coasts are some of the most rapidly changing places on earth. Understanding the natural adjustments that occur between coastal landforms and the processes that influence them is essential for the better management of coastal resources. Coasts provides a necessary background in geomorphology for those studying coastal systems. It describes the landforms 5/5(1). Sea-Level Fluctuation and Coastal Evolution - This Special Publication is the result of a symposium in honor of W. Armstrong Price held at the first SEPM Midyear Meeting at San Jose, California, on Aug The factors controlling relative sea-level change along our shores are varied and, at best, imperfectly understood.

Geomorphology is the study of landforms, and coastal geo-morphology is concerned primarily with explaining the many different types of coastal landforms, and understanding the factors that shape them.

It introduces some of the latest concepts in coastal morphodynamics, recognizing that coasts develop through co-adjustment of process and form.
