This ebook describes contemporary advances within the morphodynamics of combined sand and gravel Mediterranean coasts, and offers updates and new equipment for his or her learn and administration. It assesses how the variations within the geomorphic atmosphere, compared to conventional sandy shorelines, lead to detailed actual tactics governing the dynamics of those coasts. extra, at the foundation of box measurements, theoretical research and numerical modeling conducted at learn websites in southern Spain during the last 15 years, the booklet experiences, analyzes and compares those actual approaches and mechanisms. It additionally exhibits that the slender and intricate bathymetries and internal cabinets alter the wave propagation styles and consequently, the longshore sediment shipping gradients alongside the coast. Given the correlation among the alterations in those gradients and the coastline evolution over the years, it identifies the complexity of the internal shelf bathymetries because the major motive force of coastal adjustments and describes those methods intimately utilizing, within the plan view, the inter-annual evolution of unaltered and “altered by means of human” shorelines. finally, the e-book info how the new release and next overlapping of berms around the seashore profile are chargeable for the sediment variability at intensity and cross-shore, and concludes that the full run-up (including the water-level) is a extra influential variable than wave peak within the erosional/depositional reaction of those beaches.
