Reviews

"This is an excellent introduction and a good launching point for further inquiry into understanding our planet's coasts."--CHOICE (07/01/2018)
"Highly recommend[ed]. . . . to all coastal scientists, managers, and planners and anyone concerned about the future of our extensive global coastlines. This book serves both as a comprehensive and artfully illustrated guide to the science behind coastal processes and hazards, and an environmental call to action to address the crisis we are facing for the majority of the world's population."--Coastal Management
