  This page intentionally left blank   COASTAL PROCESSES The world’s coastlines, dividing land from sea, are geological environ-ments unique in their composition and the physical processes affectingthem. Humans have been building structures throughout history at thesedynamically active intersections of land and the oceans. Although coast-lines were initially used for naval and commercial purposes, more recentlyrecreation and tourism have increased activity in the coastal zones dra-matically. Shoreline development is now causing a significant conflict withnatural coastal processes.This text on coastal engineering will help the reader understand thesecoastal processes and develop strategies to cope effectively with shorelineerosion. The book is organized into four parts: (1) an overview of coastalengineering using case studies to illustrate problems; (2) a considerationof the hydrodynamics of the coastal zone reviewing storm surges, waterwaves, and low-frequency motions within the nearshore and surf zone;(3) a discussion of coastal responses, including equilibrium beach profilesand sediment transport; and (4) a presentation of applications such aserosion mitigation, beach nourishment, coastal armoring, tidal inlets, andshoreline management.Students, practicing engineers, and researchers in coastal engineer-ing and coastal oceanography will find this book an invaluable resourcefor understanding the mechanisms of erosion and designing shorelinestructures.RobertG.DeanisGraduateResearchProfessor,DepartmentofCivilandCoastal Engineering, University of Florida. Professor Dean is a memberof the National Academy of Engineering and serves as President of theCoastal Engineering Research Council.Robert A. Dalrymple is E. C.
