This is the ultimate guide to preservation, maintenance, and design for coastal areas. Recent major storms have reawakened public concern over coastal storm damage. "The Handbook of Coastal Engineering" equips you with the tools to apply the latest research, regulations, and design methods to all coastal engineering challenges, from beach erosion to offshore structures and dredging contaminated materials.Written by leading coastal engineering experts from around the world, this valuable resource is required reading for practicing coastal and ocean engineers, environmental and civil engineers, and others, providing up-to-the-minute information on how to: apply wave equations; control sediment transport and protect beaches; design wave-resistant coastal structures; limit shoreline erosion; design and maintain navigation channels; deal with contaminated sediments; calculate and control effluent dispersal in the coastal zone; delineate coastal hazard zones and development setbacks; use computer programs in coastal engineering; and understand and apply relevant regulations.With coverage of the latest methods and research from the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Japan, and other countries on the tip of the wave in coastal engineering development, this reference brings you true state-of-the-art methods. It's the right tool, for the right field, at the right time.
