Conducting the measurements of the sea level changes is deservedly considered to be among the most pressing goals of today's marine science, and it requires application of the sophisticated scientific techniques and approaches. The initial aim of the authors of the present handbook was to provide the interested readers with the useful and practical guidelines assisting them in this challenge, starting from the stage of the initial design of various research approached, through to the practical matters of collection and further interpretation of the relevant technical data obtained from a broadest range of the coastal environments. The content of this volume is built on more than thirty years of researches, and the body of the work has been divided into thirty-eight chapters authored by the world leading experts. The publication is expected to serve as a very important and practically useful resource to be used by the scientists willing to get a proper understanding of the changes in the sea levels across a very wide range of relevant technical disciplines, plus policy-makers who are wishing to appreciate the actual situation with the knowledge of these changes, as well as university teachers and research students, who want to know more about this problem.
