State of Nearshore Processes Research: II
MetadataShow full item record
Understanding nearshore processes is increasingly important because the majority of the world’s coastlines are eroding. The increased threat of global warming and the resulting rise in sea level may accelerate erosion problems. Beaches are a primary recreational area, are essential to commerce, and are important to nation defense, especially since the end of the cold war. Increasing our knowledge of nearshore process is crucial both economically and militarily.
