Book Review – International Compendium of Coastal Engineering

The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) has just released a book review of “International compendium of coastal engineering” by Shinji Sato. 

The book presents an excellent overview of the discipline of coastal engineering, covering a range of topics in 17 chapters and 500 pages.

Each chapter could stand on it’s own and they’re written by leading figures in the field – Yoshimi Goda on random waves, Robert Dean on beach nourishment and John Herbich on dredging, for example.

It’s mainly based on Japanese case studies, reminding the readers of the depth of experience and practice of coastal work in this country, for example in a valuable chapter on tsunamis.

However, there are also four chapters on coastal zone management that describe current practice in Europe and the USA as well.
