Sediment Fluxes in Coastal Areas
This book presents a detailed analysis and synthesis of the processes affecting sediments fluxes from watershed to worldwide coastal systems. The volume provides a comprehensive overview and constitutes a systematic description of the response of coastal systems to global and local changes, like climate change, sea level, land use and land cover change. The case studies cover a sequence of coastal environments such as lagoons, bays, estuaries, deltas and beaches.
Sediment Fluxes in Coastal Areas is designed for researchers, professionals and for course-use in hydrology, oceanography, geography, geology, geomorphology and environmental science.
Includes a collection of worldwide studies conducted by researchers from many countriesFocuses on coastal sediments fluxes in global and local scaleCovers a sequence of coastal environments (lagoons, bays, estuaries, deltas, beaches)Detailed case studies demonstrating the impact of Sediment Fluxes on coastal systems evolution
