Inhaltsangabe: This volume is a collection of papers, preceded by an introductory essay, on coastal physiography. All the authors have made significant contributions to the subject. They are of different nationalities and the papers are, deliberately, not all recent ones. In this book emphasis has been laid primarily on matters which are of general rather than local or even regional value. For example, Dr. Jelgersma's paper gives an account of recent fluctuations of sea level and is a most useful summary of the different hypotheses dealing with this complex matter. Zenkovich's paper serves as an introduction to Russian work on coastal physiography and Per Bruun's paper serves as an excellent summary of the economic reasons for coastal research.
Contents: Sea-level Changes during the Last 10,000 Years, S. Jelgersma; The Main Post-glacial Raised Shoreline of Western Scotland from the Firth of Lorne to Loch Broom, S. B. McCann; Trend Surface Mapping of Raised Shorelines, S. B. McCann and R. J. Chorley; Marking Beach Materials for Tracing Experiments, C. Kidson and A. P. Carr; A Theory of the Development of Accumulation Forms in the Coastal Zone, V. P. Zenkovich; The Relationship between Wave Incidence, Wind Direction and Beach Changes at Marsden Bay, County Durham, Cuchlaine A. M. King; The Influence of Rock Structures on Coastline and Cliff Development around Tintagel, North Cornwall, Gilbert Wilson; The Form of Nantasket Beach, Douglas W. Johnson and William G. Reed, Jr.; Methods of Correlating Cultural Remains with Stages of Coastal Development, William G. McIntire; Coastal Research and its Economic Justification, Per Bruun.
