Rate this:
In The Evolving Coast , geologist Richard Davis describes clearly and simply how long-term forces, such as crustal plate movement and fluctuating sea levels, and short-term processes, such as the weather and the action of the waves and tide, determine the character of a coast. Using breathtaking photographs, maps and drawings, Davis depicts the habitats and formations found at land's edge. He concludes by commenting on another influential force of coastal change - humanity.
