Pressestimmen"The coastal areas covered in this book are highly susceptible to severe hurricane damage. Recent storms (particularly Andrew and Opal) have been especially devastating, but have also provided clues to better methods of damage mitigation and coastline protection. The authors here explore numerous aspects of this topic, including construction techniques, shoreline engineering, and coastal regulations. They discuss the natural processes that lead to these disasters and look back at the history of storms in the region. A valuable feature of this work is an analysis of the susceptibility of specific beaches along the Gulf to storm damage."
