The fundamentals of working with nature in coastal engineering

(World Scientific) Although infinitely diverse and complex in their details, sedimentary coasts nevertheless share many morphological features, which often follow surprisingly simple laws. These common features result from self-organizing feedback, which is rooted in the non-linearity of the governing hydro-morphodynamic processes. Understanding the principles of self-organization in coastal dynamics is requisite for managing the land-sea interface, for identifying working-with-nature measures for coastal protection and for restoration of coastal wetlands.
