About this book

This book presents a detailed analysis and synthesis of the processes affecting sediments fluxes from watershed to worldwide coastal systems. The volume provides a comprehensive overview and constitutes a systematic description of the response of coastal systems to global and local changes, like climate change, sea level, land use and land cover change. The case studies cover a sequence of coastal environments such as lagoons, bays, estuaries, deltas and beaches.

Sediment Fluxes in Coastal Areas is designed for researchers, professionals and for course-use in hydrology, oceanography, geography, geology, geomorphology and environmental science.

About the authors

Mohamed Maanan is an associate professor at University of Nantes (France). His research is concerned with the interaction between coastal environment processes, earth surface materials and impact of Human activities. In particular, attention is focussed on sediment delivery processes – the temporal and spatial dynamics of sediment production and transfer (continent-ocean).

Marc Robin is Professor of the University of Nantes (France). He is specialised in watershed and coastal dynamics, policy making and management of coastal areas, risks and hazards issues along coastline, remote sensing of coastal resources and management of coastal data into geographical information systems.
