Introduction. Barrier islands represent a complex coastal system that includes a number of different sedimentary depositional environments; nearshore zone, beach, dunes, washover fans, marshes, tidal flats, estuaries, lagoons, and tidal inlets. The morphodynamics of these fragile coastal systems provide a further complication to this coastal type. Although barrier islands comprise only 15% of the world's .

This monograph presents a comprehensive description of all types of holocene barrier island systems, in varying geological settings. Although the studies are mainly concentrated on the coasts of the USA, other barrier islands of the world are covered in an abbreviated fashion. Barrier islands represent a complex coastal system that includes a number of different sedimentary depositional environments; nearshore zone, beach, dunes, washover fans, marshes, tidal flats, estuaries, lagoons, and tidal inlets. The morphodynamics of these fragile coastal systems provide a further complication to this coastal type. Although barrier islands comprise only 15% of the world's. Like most barrier systems along the U.S. Atlantic Seaboard, the origin of the features we will observe along the Assateague and Virginia barrier-island systems were strongly tied to Holocene sea-level rise rates, antecedent geologic and topographic characteristics of the landscape that the sea inundated, and sediment supply. This is the first book to cover the Holocene geology and geomorphology of the 9, kilometers of the Brazilian coast. It is written for third and fourth year undergraduates, post-graduate students, scientists and man- ers. It characterizes the Brazilian coast in terms of the Holocene geology.

Geology of Holocene Barrier Island Systems. [Richard A Davis] -- This book presents the first comprehensive treatment of all types of barrier island systems in all geologic settings. Each chapter follows a common theme, yet each also has its own story to tell. Barrier island geology is complicated in that there are numerous distinct sedimentary depositional environments, some having lateral continuity and some that do not. It is further complicated by such variables a sea level change, sediment supply and the relative influence of wave- Cited by: Read "Geology of Holocene Barrier Island Systems" by available from Rakuten Kobo.
