This book presents a detailed analysis and synthesis of the processes affecting sediments fluxes from watershed to worldwide coastal systems. The volume provides a comprehensive overview and constitutes a systematic description of the response of coastal systems to global and local changes, like climate change, sea level, land use and land cover change. The case studies cover a sequence of coastal environments such as lagoons, bays, estuaries, deltas and beaches.

Sediment Fluxes in Coastal Areasis designed for researchers, professionals and for course-use in hydrology, oceanography, geography, geology, geomorphology and environmental science.

Mohamed Maanan is an associate professor at University of Nantes (France). His research is concerned with the interaction between coastal environment processes, earth surface materials and impact of Human activities. In particular, attention is focussed on sediment delivery processes - the temporal and spatial dynamics of sediment prod...
