The Wadden Sea area of the North Sea is one which undergoes rapid morphological changes. Under natural conditions, the barrier islands would adjust themselves to a rising sea level. However, because the islands are densely populated and have an important role as holiday resorts, morphological changes are undesirable. Coastal engineering counter-measures have been undertaken to prevent beach erosion, shifting of tidal inlets, breaching of dune ridges and landward-directed washover. The natural processes and the results of human interference including the negative consequences of many of the measures are discussed in detail. The author presents the current state of research, together with the results of his own investigations. In addition, a comprehensive description of the geomorphological development and recent problems of the barrier islands from Texel to Fano is given for the first time. The book includes 40 colour photographs and 393 figures, almost all previously unpublished. Satellite and radar imagery as well as many aerial photographs are also included. The book is intended for geomorphologists, sedimentologists, environmentalists and all those with a scientific interest in tidal flats and barrier islands.
