|Title:||Geomorphological Processes and Landforms of the Coastal Environment|
|Abstract:||The coastal zone is shaped by geomorphic processes. These processes result in the development of coastal landscapes characterized by varied landforms; erosional or depositional. The coastal environment is also made up of rich coastal resources and as a result it is home to more than half of the world’s population and a diversity of flora and fauna. Hence there are interactions between human and coastal systems and these interactions lead to the modification of these coastal resources and the landscape. Although there could be several benefits resulting from these interactions, the coastal system is under threat of degradation due to both human and natural factors and this call for a concerted effort to manage it sustainably. Therefore, integrated coastal zone management is seen as the optimal method for managing the coast.|
