E-book: "Coasts. Form, process and evolution"
The world's coastlines today belong to the most heavily populated areas of the planet and must hence be considered among the fragile and vulnerable envrionments. Furthermore, it should be taken into account that coastal areas, according to their own physical features, are dynamic and changing places helped by natural factors such as waves and wind, supposing continuos changes in their physionomy.
A lack of knowledge of littoral processes has led to the progressive deterioration of many coastal areas. In this sense I share an interesting manual which deals about coastal areas, highlighting their physical features, evolution and processes.
