Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A technical evaluation of shoreline stabilization, especially offshore breakwaters, overviewing practical and theoretical concepts related to shore evolution control internationally. The co-authors from The Netherlands and Poland collaborate to cover the major types and functions of coastal structures, sediment transport, wave transformation, structural design, materials, construction, monitoring, and maintenance, including case studies from Europe, Russia, the UK, and the US. The volume offers solid information and extensive case studies; however, if one finds poor grammar and punctuation a severe distraction, then it may serve to bother more than help. Includes diagrams, charts, and a review of mathematical models. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
