Название: Coastal Processes with Engineering Applications (Cambridge Ocean Technology Series)
Авторы: Dean R.G., Dalrymple R.A.
The world's shorelines are geologic environments unique in their composition and the physical processes affecting them. Shoreline development is now causing a significant conflict with natural coastal processes. This text helps students understand these coastal processes and develop strategies to cope effectively with shoreline erosion. The book is organized in four parts: (1) an overview of coastal engineering, using case studies to illustrate problems; (2) hydrodynamics of the coastal zone, reviewing storm surges, water waves, and low frequency motions within the nearshore and surf zone; (3) coastal responses including equilibrium beach profiles and sediment transport; (4) applications such as erosion mitigation, beach nourishment, coastal armoring, tidal inlets, and shoreline management. Numerous home problems and references are key features.
