Editors: M. Maanan and M. Robin (Géolittomer, UMR 6554 CNRS/Nantes University, Nantes, France)
Book Description:
This book describes analytical methods needed by all experts active in coastal area. It provides a theoretical understanding and practical experience in GIS, remote-sensing and modelling for specific coastal environment applications. This book introduces new environmental applications to geomatic techniques and methodology to use for environmental applications.
