Europe has an extended historical past of coping with coastal erosion via a number of defense concepts, from the defences of the Venice lagoons to coastal land reclamation within the Netherlands.
This e-book offers a entire assessment of the total sea coast of Europe and a comparative research of abrasion difficulties and strategies in each one nation. each one bankruptcy discusses the normal and anthropogenic elements within the erosion method and in defence initiatives layout and upkeep, together with coastal morphology and wave weather, land use adjustments and use of coastal components, the evolution of coastal security, weather switch and political and administrative assessments.
Particular recognition is paid to demographic and financial components influencing coastal erosion in every one nation and to technical and administrative standards influencing defence initiatives layout. Lavishly illustrated in complete color all through, the publication represents a definitive reference paintings on its subject.
