This collection of 109 conference papers details the state-of-the-art in the physical aspects of coastal and inlet environments. It provides a valuable source of information from the latest research to the newest engineering applications. The topics include: effects of coastal structures, wave properties in shallow water, nearshore sediment transport, wave-current interaction, planform modeling, breaking waves, inlet morphodynamics, long waves, suspended sediments, nearshore wave modeling, morphodynamic modeling, inlet hydrodynamics, inlet sediment transport, rip currents, ripples and bedforms, nearshore circulation, micro-scale processes, regional studies, nearshore bars, shoreline and transport modeling, longterm morphodynamics, swash hydrodynamics, beach nourishment, swash and graded sediments, cross-shore response, monitoring, intertidal processes, and rhythmic features.
