AUTHOR

Anderson, John B.

SUMMARY

With strong personal and professional ties to the Gulf of Mexico, marine geologist John B. Anderson has spent two decades studying the Texas coastline and continental shelf. In this book, he answers fundamental, frequently asked questions about the coast--how it evolved; how it operates; how natural processes affect it and why it is ever changing; and, finally, how human development can be managed to help preserve it. The book provides an amply illustrated look at ocean waves and currents, beach formation and erosion, barrier island evolution, hurricanes, and sea level changes. With an abundance of visual material--including aerial photos, historical maps, simple figures, and satellite images--the author presents a lively, interesting lesson in coastal geography that readers will remember and appreciate the next time they are at the beach and want to know: What happens to sand that erodes from our beaches? Can beach erosion be stopped--and should we try? How much sand is needed to stabilize our beaches? Does a hurricane have any positive impacts? How much development can the coast withstand? This entertaining and instructive book authoritatively answers these and many other questions that are essential to our understanding of coastal change.Anderson, John B. is the author of 'Formation and Future of the Upper Texas Coast A Geologist Answers Questions About Sand, Storms, and Living by the Sea', published 2007 under ISBN 9781585445615 and ISBN 1585445614.
