Summary
Abstract: Coastal Changes Due to Sea-Level Rise:

One of the most important applied problems in coastal geology today is
determining the physical response of the coastline to sea-level rise.
Predicting shoreline retreat, beach loss, cliff retreat, and land loss rates is
critical to planning coastal zone management strategies and assessing
biological impacts due to habitat change or destruction. Presently, ... View entire text
