Abstract
    Progress in coastal geomorphology since World War II has involved several contrasting approaches with distinctive methodologies. It is apparent that over the past go years scholars have attempted to explain morphological phenomena by a wide variety of methods. In this paper we attempt to integrate interests in 'process' geomorphology with those of 'historical' geomorphology. The prime concern of this article is to review the present state of the art in explaining coastal landform behaviour and development and to present a general conceptual model which is applicable to the variety of time and space scales in coastal geomorphology.
