Coastal Engineering

  • Robert M. Sorensen

Abstract

The competent coastal engineer must develop a basic understanding of the characteristics and physical behavior of the coastal environment, as well as be able to apply engineering principles and concepts to developing opportunities and solving problems in this environment. Consequently, this book provides an introduction to those physical processes that are important in the coastal zone. It also introduces the analytical basis for and application of those methods required to support coastal engineering and design.
