Abstract
    The principal themes of this title are: (1) The nature of basic processes affecting coasts and estuaries and their relationship to morphological and sedimentological changes on time scales ranging from months to millennia, and at spatial scales ranging from tens of metres to tens of kilometres; (2) The effects of changes in the natural environmental forcing factors on coastal and estuarine morphology and sedimentary characteristics, and the implications for human activities and their record; (3) The impacts of human activities and their record on coastal and estuarine processes and morphology; (4) Issues relating to the future management and conservation of the natural and archaeological heritage, including outstanding problems and future research needs. This publication contains 29 papers based on a selection of the 32 oral presentations and more than 30 poster presentations made at the conference, and draws on examples from all over the world. The ordering of chapters has been arranged broadly to follow the sequence of the four main themes, starting with the shorter term, smaller scale and moving to the longer term, larger scale and management issues. There is, naturally, considerable overlap between themes in many of the contributions. We hope that this book will serve not only as a record of scientific knowledge and concerns at the end of the first millennium, but also as a stimulus for further research endeavour and a significant influence on thinking about the ways in which natural processes, historical changes and the record of human activities in coastal and estuarine environments need to be taken into account in their future management. The need for breadth of approach, and a willingness toward sympathetic communication between different specialists, has never been greater.
