I have had some experiences in working together on coastal geomorphological studies with Eric. He has been consistently working in this field until now. Based on his experiences in looking various coastal parts of the world, and his quick understanding of what he has looked in the fields, in addition to his very comprehensive and holistic writing capability, it is right to say that he is a real outstanding well known coastal geomorphologist. This book is his updated accumulative knowledge on this interesting sites of the earth, the coasts.
Hoping always a good health for him and be happy with his family.
Best regards and thank you very much for Eric,
