This subject examines the development of coastal landforms and the processes responsible for change in the coastal zone. This includes discussion of waves, currents, tides, and changing sea levels, beaches, estuaries, dunes, and rocky coasts. A theoretical understanding of the subject is developed through examining conceptual models of coastal development and behaviour.
