This new Encyclopedia of Coastal Science stands as the latest authoritative source in the field of coastal studies, making it the standard reference work for specialists and the interested lay person. Unique in its interdisciplinary approach. This Encyclopedia features contributions by 245 well-known international specialists in their respective fields and is abundantly illustrated with line-drawings and photographs. Not only does this volume offer an extensive number of entries, it also includes various appendices, an illustrated glossary of coastal morphology and extensive bibliographic listings.

Endorsement: "I know of no similar work (in scope, content and orientation). That is why we are all waiting so anxiously for this volume to be completed. Its perspective is unique." Charles Finkel, Editor to the "Journal of Coastal Research" Reviews: "The contents and approach are interdisciplinary and, under a single cover, one finds subjects normally scattered throughout scientific literature." "The topics cover a broad spectrum, so does the geographic range of the contributors. ! besides geomorphologists, biologists, ecologists, engineers, geographers, geologists, oceanographers and technologists will find information related to their respective fields ! . Inclusion of appendices ! is very useful. The illustrated glossary of geomorphology will prove very useful for many of us ! ." Roger H. Charlier, Journal of Coastal Research, Volume 21, Number 4, Page 866, West Palm Beach, Florida, July 2005. "It is an excellent work that should be included in any carefully selected list of best science reference books of the year."..."The editor has made a considerable effort to improve on Beaches. In both editions, the contributors' list is notable for having authors from all over the world, and the entries are about the same length, from a long paragraph to several pages."..."Summing Up: Highly recommended. For reference collections in university libraries and for other libraries located in coastal areas." M.L. Larsgaard, Choice, Volume 43, Issue 6, Page 989, Middletown, February 2006 "This volume is a comprehensive collection of articles covering all aspects of the subject: social and economic, engineering, coastal processes, habitats, erosion, geological features, research and observation." ... "As with similar works reviewed, I chose to read articles on familiar topics to see if they covered the expected, and some on unfamiliar topics to see if they could be readily understood. The book passed both tests, but the style is denser and more fact-filled than most of the encyclopedias I have reviewed." John Goodier, Reference Reviews, Volume 20, Number 2, 2006, pages 35-36
