   This volume prepared by three authors - Giovanni Randazzo, Andrew Cooper and Derek Jackson - is drawing together a series of specific studies related to the geomorphology and temporal evolution of the spits in all areas of the world. The publication offers its readers some of the truly unique insights into the examination of the subject landforms from the scientific viewpoint; the author also addressed how the people impact these landforms and provided a global perspective on the genesis and evolution of the spits. The spits are treated as the natural environments with their evolution being linked to the coast as well as the supply of the sediments, morphology of the near shore area, changes in the sea level and coastal dynamics. Note that the GMSL, standing for the global mean sea level, has already risen by ten to twenty centimeters over the past century. There were several scientific researches that indicated that the sea levels all around the world have been rising since the early 1990s, and the average rate was about 3.5 millimeters per year. And this trend, when linked to the ongoing process of global warming, will inevitable be causing significant major changes in the morphology of spits, representing a sort of signature of past changes in the environment and providing a natural landform indicator of the changes to climate.
