Abstract
    This book breaks down primary concepts of coastal vulnerability by providing a thorough discussion of the concept. It addresses coastal vulnerability around the world with specific examples from the Ebro Delta (Spain), the crumbling cliffs of Corton Village/Suffolk (UK), and tsunami-worn Phuket (Thailand/Indian Ocean) as well as others. Ultimately, a framework is established for discussion about global locations and sustaining resilience of coastal areas.
