Coasts is about the processes that shape beaches, deltas, reefs, marshes, mudflats and other coastal landforms. It brings together studies that look at sediment movement, with longer-term evolution of the coast determined from coring and dating coastal sediments.

Coasts is about the processes that shape beaches, deltas, reefs, marshes, mudflats and other coastal landforms. It provides well-referenced and up-to-date material for undergraduates and postgraduates studying coastal environments. It will also appeal to environmental scientists, coastal geologists, coastal managers and planners.

Coasts : Form, Process and Evolution. By (author) Colin D. Woodroffe.

The wide range of his interests is summarised in his comprehensive book Coasts: form process and evolution (2003), as well as his two more recent co-authored books, The Coast of Australia (2009), and Quaternary Sea-level Changes (2014). Morphodynamics of estuaries.

Coasts provides a necessary background in geomorphology for those studying coastal systems. It describes the landforms that occur on the coast, their responses to the processes that shape them, and the pattern of evolution that can be determined for different types of coasts over thousands of years. Numerous examples from around the world illustrate the variety of environments. Particular attention is paid to coastal morphodynamics; the co-adjustment of process and form, on rocky, reef, sandy, deltaic-estuarine and muddy coasts.

In this comprehensive book, almost all subjects are discussed relating with the coastal evolution. If you are looking for a source in a geomorphological approach, this one most probably will satisfy you. Author designed his book into four major chapters. The first one consist of an extended introduction part including historical perspectives, geological background and coastal processes while in the second part there are some different coastal types (rocky, muddy, deltas etc..). The third part deals with the morphodynamic processes and the last part relates with the human activities and future coasts. However, it could has been better to explain Quaternary sea level changes and seismic/aseismic events effecting direclty the coastal evolution in detail. Nevertheless, the book was well-written, understandable easily, and based on huge literature.
