Product description


'… what makes this book so special is that, in addition to the 'wow-factor' arising from the over 200 colour photographs, it also offers an excellent synthesis of how the Australian coast has evolved. … The book is extremely well-written and attractively type-set, and colour photographs and diagrams are used throughout. … The book is excellent and certainly does credit to the magnificent Australian coast by giving an in-depth and comprehensive insight into its variability and evolution.' The Geographical Journal

Book Description

Written by two of Australia's leading coastal scientists, Andrew Short and Colin Woodroffe, The Coast of Australia provides the first comprehensive account of the Australian coast. Covering 36,000km of shoreline, it details the various coastal systems that operate, including beaches, dunes, estuaries, deltas, rocky coast and coral reefs.
