MetadataShow full item record
T his book on beach management was wri�en in order to provide a counterbalance to the many excellent books associated with beach management that emphasize coastal engineering and the variety of techniques associated with this particular field. To that extent we have introduced extremely li�le coastal engineering apart from some aspects related to beach nourishment. In recognition that considerable efforts in beach management are carried out in an ad hoc manner to correct problems as they occur, this book recognizes that effective beach management needs to be set upon a firmament of sound science, the base from which all management should commence.
