Coastal Evolution: Late Quaternary Shoreline Morphodynamics by R. W. G. Carter, C. D. Woodroffe, Orson van de Plassche

By R. W. G. Carter, C. D. Woodroffe, Orson van de Plassche

This e-book assesses how coastlines swap and the way they've got advanced during the last few thousand years. It introduces a few of the most recent recommendations in coastal morphodynamics, spotting that coasts improve via co-adjustment of strategy and shape. The authors learn specific sorts of coasts--deltas, estuaries, reefs, lagoons and polar coasts--in element with conceptual types built at the foundation of well-studied examples. as well as being a textual content for graduate-level scholars, this can be a accomplished resource for geologists, engineers, environmental scientists, planners and coastal managers.

Characterization and Behavior of Interfaces: Proceedings of Research Symposium on Characterization and Behavior of Interfaces, 21 September 2008, Atlanta, Georgia, USA

Interfaces exist in each geotechnical process in lots of kinds and at a number of scales. even if traditionally, they can be thought of to be the vulnerable hyperlink in a process, relatively because the results of a couple of unforeseen catastrophic disasters, new perception received during the last 20 years by way of researchers worldwide has proven that it truly is attainable to choose mixtures of fabrics and layout an engineered interface in order that it really is no less than as powerful because the surrounding fabrics.
