Throughout recorded history, humans have derived both sustenance and pleasure from proximity to the sea. Archeological artifacts testify to our continuous presence at the coast and provide clues to how we have changed the landscape. At any number of temporal and spatial scales, humans have clearly become the dominant geomorphological agents in the coastal zone. The details of how this important role is being fulfilled is the subject of Beaches and Dunes of Developed Coasts.
