About this book

This books presents the first comprehensive overview of the evolution, geology, geomorphology and dynamics of Holocene coastal barriers in Brazil. Following two introductory chapters outlining the coast geology, climate, oceanography, general setting and dynamics, each subsequent chapter deals with the evolution and development of Holocene barriers in each state covering 9,200 kilometers of coastline. The examples cover all tidal types from micro to macro tidal, all wave and wind energies, and virtually every barrier type ranging from barrier islands, spits, strandplains, attached, receded and prograded barriers, climbing, clifftop and falling dunefield barriers and the largest transgressive dunefield barriers in the world. The book has been written by experts in Brazil, and provides a wealth of information previously inaccessible to scientists, students and managers.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"A long period in which Brazil’s coastal geology was largely ignored by the international community, now has come to an end with … fascinating studies that comprehensively documents coastal dynamics, geomorphology and Holocene evolution of Brazil’s coast. … The book has been written by thirty contributing authors, all experts in Brazil … shows from the extensive lists of up to date references that follow each chapter, and without doubt fills a gap in the library of many geological department. … the book is wholeheartedly recommended." (T. J. A. Reijers, Geo-Brief, October, 2009)
