#28-Coastal Erosion Mapping & Management (1999) [Crowell & Leatherman]



-Coastal erosion is defined as either the wearing away of land or the removal of beach/dune sediments by wave action, tidal currents, wave currents, and/or drainage. The study of erosion and sediment redistribution is called 'coastal morphodynamics', and it may be caused by hydraulic action, abrasion, or corrosion. This JCR Special Issue explores the mapping and management techniques of coastal erosion in order to determine if the process is a long-term loss of sediment and rocks or just the mere temporary distribution of coastal sediments.  Mark Crowell, FEMA expert on coastal erosion, and Dr. Steve Leatherman, Director of the National Hurricane Center, served as the principal editors for this volume of publications.
