Coastal geology / Геология прибрежных областей

Here is the first complete manual on Coastal Geology. A book that gathers the knowledge of more than a century of research on different geological aspects of the coast: dynamics of geological processes, geomorphology, sedimentology and stratigraphy. They are also reflected from the applications of these sciences to the social problems and challenges of the communities occupying coastal areas. This manual collects many of my research experiences on different shores of the world, but almost everything written in this book I learned in other books. That is why I thought this manual would not be the first on Coastal Geology. However, when I began collecting bibliography, before I began writing, I realized that all the books that had been written so far collected partial aspects of this science: coastal dynamics, coastal geomorphology or coastal sedimentary environments. None of them united all geological aspects into a single vision. They all reach greater thematic depth than this book. I wanted to write a student book that was complete. A book written in an easy-to-understand language and including very didactic figures (that worth more than a thousand words). A book that would cut to the chase and contain only the essentials. The book I would have liked to have had when I started realizing that my vocation was the coast. The final recipients are not advanced scientists, but students, well… also coastal researchers who start their careers. For this reason, the chapters will not be as deep as other books written for expert scientists and professionals. But then I thought maybe any of those advanced students will need a little more information on specifics. That is why I created the advanced boxes. A geology student can really understand the book without them, but advanced boxes are intended for those coastal geologists who begin their research, those who want to know more. <...>
