Coastal geomorphology, by definition, is the study of the morphological development and evolution of the coast as it acts under the influence of winds, waves, currents, and sea-level changes. This study of physical processes and responses in the coastal zone is often applied in nature, but it also involves basic research to provide the.

How coastal archaeology was originally discovered B. It is difficult to understand how many people lived close to the sea. C. How much the prehistoric communities understand the climate change D. Our knowledge of boat evidence is limited. E. Some fishing ground was converted to ports. F. Human development threatens the archaeological remains. Archaeologists have long encountered evidence of natural disasters through excavation and stratigraphy. In Surviving Sudden Environmental Change, case studies examine how eight different past human communities—ranging from Arctic to equatorial regions, from tropical rainforests to desert interiors, and from deep prehistory to living memory—faced, and coped with, such by: Archaeology and Coastal Change in the Netherlands Dr L.
