Beach and nearshore sedimentation : based on a symposium sponsored by the Society of Economic Paleontologists and Mineralogists by Society of Economic Paleontologists and Mineralogists( Book )

17 editions published between 1976 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1975 SEPM Research Symposium was organised around the topic of Beach and Nearshore Sedimentation - Physical and Biological. This volume, derived from that symposium, provides a wealth of data on the details on the generation, hydromechanics and sediment interaction of processes operating in beach and nearshore environments. The subject is treated in such a way as to be of considerable benefit to coastal engineers, sedimentologists and field geologists

18 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Tidalites : processes & products by International Conference on Tidal Sedimentology( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tidal processes are important agents of sediment transport and deposition. Recent development of better tools for recognising tidal deposits (e.g., tidal bundles and tidal rhythmites) has also revealed that such deposits are more common and extensive than previously thought. This volume presents the latest ideas on tidal sedimentation, including work concerning the tidal flats of the Wadden Sea, the area where modern-day studies of tidal sedimentation began; the origin, interpretation, and uses of tidal rhythmites; and the sequencestratigraphic context of tidal sediments
Coasts by Richard A Davis( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Geology of Holocene barrier island systems by Richard A Davis( Book )

9 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents the first comprehensive treatment of all types of barrier island systems in all geologic settings. Each chapter follows a common theme, yet each also has its own story to tell. The examples are widespread and well illustrated. The book presents all types of barriers while concentrating on the coast of the United States. Other barriers of the world are also covered in an abbreviated manner. The Holocene barriers treated here can be extrapolated into the ancient stratigraphic record. The chapters are designed to be comprehensive state-of-the-art summaries of the respective barrier systems rather than the usual specific treatment that is typical of individual research reports or symposia monographs
Oceanography : an introduction to the marine environment by Richard A Davis( Book )

In Beaches of the Gulf Coast, Richard A. Davis Jr., a veteran coastal geologist, explores the dynamics of beach formation, providing the reader with a basic understanding of the characteristics and behavior of the beach environment and what cau
