Beaches and dunes of human-altered coasts

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The purpose of this review is to examine the literature on developed coasts to identify the many ways that human activities alter coastal landforms, to reveal the pervasive nature of the conversion process and to demonstrate why human alterations should be viewed as an integral component of landscape evolution. The review is confined to publications that have appeared since 1980, with the exception of a few key works that appeared prior to that time. The focus is on beaches and dunes and their vegetative cover on the coasts of oceans and seas
