Recent disasters have confirmed the importance of adequate protection of coastal areas. The cumulative effect of development in these regions needs to be better understood in order to ensure that they are managed in a sustainable fashion. Given the dynamics of the processes taking place on shorelines and the multitude of aspects that need to be considered the problems involved are extremely challenging.
Bringing together contributions from researchers and professionals engaged in the development of modern computational and experimental tools, this book addresses many subjects relevant to the successful management of such areas and offers new insights. The papers featured were originally presented at the Seventh International Conference on Modelling, Measurements, Engineering and Management of Seas and Coastal Regions .
