The British coasts have everything, from towering cliffs rising a thousand feet and more sheer from deep water, to miles of tidal slobs and flats , restless shingle splits, shifting beaches, moving sand dunes, immobile rock headlands. This book links geological history with geological movements. It show in a persuasive and compelling way the origin and evolution of cliffs, estuaries, sea marshes, beaches, sands and dunes, with the communities of plants and animals that they support.
