Beach Management Eric C. F. Bird Geostudies Beach Management is the latest book in the Coastal Morphology and Research Series, and deals with the origin of beaches, the processes at work on them, the causes of beach erosion and accretion, and the ways in which the coast has been modified by anti-erosion structures. The emplacement of artificial bleaches, and the use and development of beaches for recreation is also covered. This volume provides background for those concerned with planning and management of the coast (particularly where there are problems of erosion and beach maintenance), beach usage and recreational development. It also provides information and case studies for courses in coastal management.
