9780632043088: Beaches and Coasts

Coastlines of the world are as diverse as any geological setting on Earth. Beaches and Coasts is an exciting and unique new textbook that provides an exhaustive treatment of the world's different coasts and details the highly varied processes that have shaped them.

Having conducted research on coastlines throughout the world, the authors draw on a wealth of experience that broadens the content of chapters and provides for numerous and varied examples. The book furnishes a basic understanding of the tectonic framework, hydrographic regime, climatic setting, and geologic materials that determine the morphology of a coast. Individual chapters are devoted to major coastal environments such as barriers, tidal inlets, marshes, estuaries, lagoons, deltas, glaciated coasts, rocky coasts and many others.

Beaches and Coasts provides the necessary content for teaching a broad coastal geology course. Though designed for introductory students, its comprehensive treatment of coastal topics will make it appropriate for many upper level courses.

About the Author:

Richard A. Davis Jr is Distinguished University Professor Emeritus at the University of South Florida. He has spent the past 40 years studying coasts throughout the world. He specializes in beach/inlet/barrier island morphodynamics and Holocene history of coasts. Dr Davis is the author/editor of twelve previous volumes, most of which are on coastal topics.


Duncan M. FitzGerald is an Associate Professor in the Earth Science Department at Boston University. During the past 25 years he has studied the morphodynamics and hydraulics of tidal inlets, the stratigraphy and evolution of barrier systems, and sediment transport in estuaries. This research has taken him to coasts throughout the world resulting in numerous professional publications.

Review:

"I congratulate the authors-Richard Davis and Duncan Fitzgerald-on an excellent textbook about coasts for an audience with limited scientific expertise. I would recommend Beaches and Coasts to anyone with an interest in this topic. "(Environmental & Engineering Geoscience, February 2011)

"...one of the most complete, clearly written and up-to-date publications on the topic...Beaches and Coasts is a book that deserves wide readership...Its didactic form and simple (though not superficial) language makes the book excellent for teaching...[it] will become a classical textbook in the subject." (Journal of Sedimentary Research, June 2005)
