Abstract

This book explicitly addresses the interaction between physical and biological estuarine processes. It deals with environments that intersect the shallow subtidal, intertidal and frequently flooded supratidal shoreline and define the land-water contact along seagrass beds, intertidal flats, beaches, salt marshes, mangroves, plus a wide variety of human altered environments. The studies and case histories describe and discuss the processes that create and shape the physical and biological environments on estuarine shorelines. They also identify the current state of knowledge and trends in research that may be applied to the solution of scientific and management problems. The book combines process-orientated studies of shoreline dynamics with case studies examining spatial and temporal variability of shoreline change.
