The present volume is intended to unify and enhance the accessibility of the modern scholarly researches relating to the advances in the field of coastal modeling. A wide spectrum of the innovative models is addressing the whole diversity and all different aspects of these researches together with the dynamics and responses of the coastal systems and subsystems.

The chapters of the book have been prepared by the coastal experts from different countries in order to provide readers with the valuable technical insights of the developments and contemporary knowledge of the models considered essential for proper understanding and prediction of the dynamics. Among the features of the present publication we would underline the encompassing and very impressive presentation of the operational/functional models for all people with the interest in professional modeling of the oceans, seas and coasts.

The content of the volume also includes the chapters focusing on the shore lines and beaches modeling, in addition to the dynamic processes of waves and flows, currents and transport of sediments. The main scope of the publication has been strengthened with supplementary chapters that concentrate of the major effects that the coastal structures have on the near-shore flows, coastal pollution and eco-modeling and other relevant information.
