Applied coastal geomorphology by J. A Steers( Book )

29 editions published between 1970 and 1971 in English and Undetermined and held by 707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a collection of papers, preceded by an introductory essay, on coastal physiography. All the authors have made significant contributions to the subject. They are of different nationalities and the papers are, deliberately, not all recent ones. In this book emphasis has been laid primarily on matters which are of general rather than local or even regional value. For example, Dr. Jelgersma's paper gives an account of recent fluctuations of sea level and is a most useful summary of the different hypotheses dealing with this complex matter. Zenkovich's paper serves as an introduction to Russian work on coastal physiography and Per Bruun's paper serves as an excellent summary of the economic reasons for coastal research

The Sea Coast shows in a persuasive and compelling way the origin and evolution of cliffs, estuaries, sea marshes, sand dunes and the communities of plants and animals that they support. This edition is exclusive to newnaturalists.com Britain's coasts have everything, from towering cliffs rising sheer from deep water to a thousand feet and more, to miles of tidal slobs and flats, restless shingle spits, shifting beaches, immobile rock headlands. The extraordinary consequences of a varied climate and a complicated geology are shown even more effectively in Britain's coasts than in her fascinating island scenery.Our greatest authority on coastal topography, Professor Steers, has studied the nature of Britain's sea-side and the evolution of coasts and coastline for most of his life. A past Professor of Geography of Cambridge University, he made the now famous comprehensive survey of our entire coastline. His book shows in a persuasive and compelling way the origin and evolution of cliffs, estuaries, sea marshes, sand dunes and the communities of plants and animals that they support
