Handbook of Coastal Disaster Mitigation for Engineers and Planners Book Review:

The world’s population is expected to increase to over 8 billion by 2020. About 60% of the total population of the world lives in coastal areas and 65% of the cities with a population of over 2.5 million are located in coastal areas. Written by an international panel of experts in the fields of engineering and risk management, The Handbook of Coastal Disasters Mitigation presents a coherent overview of 10 years of coastal disaster risk management and engineering, during which some of the most relevant events of recent time have taken place, including the Indian Ocean tsunami, hurricanes Katrina and Sandy in the United States or the 2011 Japanese tsunami. International case studies offer practical lessons on how disaster resilience can be improved in the future Contains tools and techniques for analyzing and managing the risk of coastal disasters Provides engineering measures for mitigating coastal vulnerability to tsunamis, tropical cyclones, and hurricanes Includes crucial tactics for rehabilitation and reconstruction of the infrastructure

Coastal Planning and Management Book Review:

The coastline is an important part of the country's natural heritage since it provides valuable scenery, plant and wildlife habitats, and geographical features. The coast also provides significant benefits of shelter and deep water for ports and harbours, breeding grounds for fish and shellfish, and opportunities for tourism and recreation. The developed coast has its share of dereliction and of land which will need to be re-developed in the forseeable future. This report addresses the technical earth science information on the physical environment needed to support decision making in the coastal zone, with particular reference to the earth science information needs at the various stages of the planning and development process. The report has relevance for a wider audience, by describing the key considerations that need to be addressed by all those with an interest or responsibility in coastal management.
