Australian Coastal Systems Book Description :

This book describes the entire coast and beaches and barrier systems of Australia. It covers the coastal processes and systems that form and impact Australia's 30.000 km coast, 12.000 beaches and 2750 barrier systems. These processes include geology, geomorphology, climate, waves, tides, currents, sediment supply, as well as coastal ecosystems. The coast is divided into tropical northern and southern temperate provinces, within which are seven divisions, 23 regions and 354 coastal sediment compartments each of which is described in detail in the 34 chapters. Within these systems are the full range of wave through tide-dominated beaches and barriers ranging from cheniers to massive transgressive dune systems together with a range of onshore and longshore sand transport systems. This is an up to date reference for the entire coast, its present condition and likely responses to the impacts of climate change.

Bananas Beaches and Bases Book Description :

In this brand new radical analysis of globalization, Cynthia Enloe examines recent events—Bangladeshi garment factory deaths, domestic workers in the Persian Gulf, Chinese global tourists, and the UN gender politics of guns—to reveal the crucial role of women in international politics today. With all new and updated chapters, Enloe describes how many women's seemingly personal strategies—in their marriages, in their housework, in their coping with ideals of beauty—are, in reality, the stuff of global politics. Enloe offers a feminist gender analysis of the global politics of both masculinities and femininities, dismantles an apparently overwhelming world system, and reveals that system to be much more fragile and open to change than we think.

Beaches in Space and Time Book Description :

Ever wonder, as you stroll along a beach, why the beach is there? Why is it shaped the way it is? What made the sand? Why are there rocks or no rocks? Why do those waves keep rolling in and rolling back out? Why does that delightful breeze shift? How can I keep my umbrella anchored in the sand? This book may not answer that last question, but it will answer all the others, and many more. 'This book by an internationally well-known coastal expert translates science into comprehensible popular language. Readers will especially appreciate the profusion and variety of illustrations from the entire globe.' -- Dr. Ervin G. Otvos, Head Geology Section, Gulf Coast Research Laboratory and Emeritus Professor, Department of Coastal Sciences, University of Southern Mississippi This book explains how beaches originate, what they are made of, and how wind, waves, tides, storms, sea level change, and human development affect them. Includes a section on the most beautiful and interesting beaches in the world--a good many of them in Florida.

Beach Renourishment Book Description :

Beach renourishment is the restoration of beaches that have been depleted. The text deals with the sources of beach sediment as well as the causes and typical responses to beach erosion, before discussion of beach renourishment. Some of the first documented renourishment projects were undertaken in the early 1900’s on the east coast of the United States. Several countries have since renourished beaches, particularly during the past few decades. Most projects have been in the United States, the United Kingdom, some European countries and Australia. These are reviewed and experience from various beach renourishment projects used for discussion of the following topics: 1. The need for preliminary investigations 2. Sources of sediment for beach renourishment 3. Methods of beach renourishment 4. Design considerations 5. Monitoring changes after beach renourishment 6. Assessment of performance 7. Modelling of beach renourishment 8. Beach renourishment for coast protection 9. Environmental impacts 10. Costs and benefits 11. Response of renourished beaches to a rising sea level

Morphological Variability of Embayed Beaches Along the Catalan Coast Book Description :

Natural and man made embayment beaches are a common feature along the Catalan coast. Many of these embayment beaches have experience changes in shoreline position jeopardizing the protective and recreational functions of the beach. Therefore, an understanding of the morphological variability of this system is needed in order to facilitate an effective and sustainable coastal zone management. The present study was undertaken with the objectives of: 1) study the shoreline evolution of the Catalan coast, 2) determine medium term oscillation and the forcing mechanisms governing this process by means of a theoretical model and 3) evaluate the frequency of the theoretical model using the last 7 years of wave data. Data from nine sandy beaches along the Catalan coast consisted on previously define digitalized coastlines from the Environmental Ministry, the Cartographic Institute of Catalonia and satellite images from Google Earth. Results from the shoreline evolution showed that the embayed beaches of Catalonia presented a stable behavior, beaches with the same morphology followed a same trend in the stability test propose by Hsu, 1989. The results of beach mobility showed a non-uniform behavior of the sub-aerial beach width within a beach and along the Catalonian coast. The mayor difference between beaches was due to the orientation of the shoreline, the beach type and the exposure to wave conditions. Embayed beaches also exhibited a wide degree of beach rotation. Beaches with similar morphology show similar degrees of rotation. A theoretical model of the main configurations observed during the study period has been developed for each beach. Results showed that exposed beaches presented an anticlockwise, quasi-uniform and clockwise configuration, while semi-exposed beaches only show a higher anticlockwise and a lower anticlockwise configuration. In the analysis of wave forces on the embayment, it has been observed that wave direction was the primary forcing mechanism that

Utah Beach Book Description :

Although the assault on Utah Beach ultimately became one of the most successful military operations of World War II, its outcome was anything but certain. Not only was Utah the most isolated of the five D-Day beaches, but the airborne assault was of unprecedented size and complexity. Despite the perils, American troops confidently cascaded into that far corner of Normandy and contributed decisively to the Allied triumph on D-Day. With verve and authority, Balkoski describes how that victory was won.
