A coastline can be a scene of dramatic confrontation or peaceful resolve as the water meets the land. In this strikingly illustrated volume, geologist Richard Davis explores the evolution, nature, and dynamics of all kinds of coastal systems-from rugged cliffs with crashing surf; to wide sandy beaches with gentle waves; to deltas, coastal bays, estuaries, lagoons, and barrier islands. Throughout, Davis focuses on the two major influences that shape a coastline's distinctive personality: tectonic plate movement within the earth and changes in sea level. He concludes by assessing the growing pressures that increased human and commercial activity are putting on natural coastal systems.


Richard A. Davis, Jr., is Distinguished Research Professor in the Geology Department at the University of South Florida in Tampa.

I just would like to say that if you are interested in Coastal Morphology but didn't think that you could ever understand the science behind the processes, think again. This book was extremely well writen and easily understood. This was a text I had to buy for a class and is the first text that I actually liked to read. It helped me to understand the concepts of Coastal morphology and how the processes work. Wonderful easy read. Thanks to the author for writing such a great addition to college texts!!! "

Easy-to-read reference describing plate tectonics, erosion, changing sea levels, and other topics, with a focus on the coast. Although the term 'evolving' in its title does not refer to the evolution of life, the coast was indeed the environment where many of the most significant evolutionary advances took place. "
