Summary
"Maurice Schwartz has brought forth a new volume with a fresh interdisciplinary approach that includes geomorphology, ecology, engineering, technology, oceanography, and human activities as they relate to coasts. Within its cover the Encyclopedia of Coastal Science includes many aspects of the coastal sciences that are only to be found scattered among scientific literature." "Being broadly interdisciplinary in its treatment of coasts, the Encyclopedia of Coastal Science features contributions by 245 international specialists in their respective fields and is illustrated with line-drawings and photographs. Not only does this volume offer an extensive number of entries, it also includes various appendices, an illustrated glossary of coastal geomorphology and extensive bibliographic listings. This encyclopedia thus provides a comprehensive reference work for students, professionals as well as informed lay readers."--Jacket
