  • Slope-Channel Coupling as a Factor in the Evolution of Mountainsby Mał Wistuba; gorzata

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    In this thesis, coupling between the delivery of slope material into valley floors and river erosion is considered to be a factor in the evolution of mid-altitude, forested mountains. Analyses of slope-channel interactions were made in ten small catchments with particular emphasis on landsliding-erosion feedback. An original, new dendrogeomorphic approach... more...

  • Coastal Systemsby Simon Haslett

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 60.95

    The coast represents the crossroads between the oceans, land and atmosphere, and all three contribute to the physical and ecological evolution of coastlines. Coasts are dynamic systems, with identifiable inputs and outputs of energy and material. Changes to input force coasts to respond, often in dramatic ways as attested by the impacts of the Indian... more...

  • Hydrodynamics of Coastal Zonesby S.R. Massel

    Elsevier Science 1989; US$ 72.95

    This book discusses selected theoretical topics of coastal hydrodynamics, including basic principles and applications in coastal oceanography and coastal engineering. It is not intended as a handbook; the emphasis is placed on presentation of a number of basic problems, rather than giving detailed instructions for their application. The bulk of the... more...
