Containing papers presented at the Third International Conference on Physical Coastal Processes, Management and Engineering, this book examines the latest on coastal zone dynamics, which involve complex interactions between the atmosphere, ocean, and land.
The included papers address a number of areas of concern in coastal zone management. Large temporal and spatial differences in air-sea exchange processes and wind strength and direction result from the complex interactions referred to above. Recreational and tourism activities make demands on coastal areas. With the number and frequency of extreme events due increases with climate change, their role in changing coastal zones also needs to be considered.
The book considers all of these and covers such topics as: Wave Modelling; Coastal Processes; Coastal Zone Management; Sediment Transport and Erosion.
