The title of the publication is quite self-explanatory - it tells readers about mapping the coasts. The coasts are places where the land and sea meet - they are not only very beautiful looking, but they are also deservedly considered to be among the planet's most fascinating landforms. Well, they are not that easy to describe as no coastline can be exactly the same with the course of the time.

There are tides making the ocean surface rise and fall regularly, changing the coast line. There are waves that pound the shores and break down the rocks, adding or moving the layers of dirt and sand. There are rivers that spill into the oceans - they deposit the debris gathered along their way...

In short, you will learn about the process of mapping coasts, how to do it in a correct way providing accurate results. The glossary containing the frequently used terminology is included for better understanding of the text.
