Coastal Geomorphology - Special Issue, November 2013

Guest Editors: Chris Houser and Jean Ellis

This virtual special issue recognizes the contributions of Dr Robin Davidson-Arnott to coastal and aeolian geomorphology as a scientist and a mentor. Twenty-four invited students and colleagues of Robin presented their research at the 2011 Annual Meeting of the Association of American Geographers in Seattle, Washington in sessions focused on aeolian transport, coastal dunes, coastal systems, and beach–dune interaction.
