Abstract
    The Coastlines, Structures and Breakwaters conference series is internationally recognised for its balanced spread of presentations, research, design, construction and a strong emphasis on practical application. This book presents international experience in design and construction practice and describes recent improvements in analysis and prediction methods. Recent research results include new guidance on wave loadings; advances in predicting wave overtopping; effects of climate change on coastal flooding; and improvements in hazard and reliability analysis. Papers on wave overtopping and wave loadings have significantly improved the understanding of the complex processes involved, with new guidance from the European CLASH project on the magnitude of overtopping hazards and their distributions, methods to correct scale and model effects for low discharge overtopping, and use of new prediction tools including Neural Networks and numerical models. The importance of good understanding and prediction tools for overtopping responses is illustrated by papers on seawall experience from Japan, reliability methods for sea defences in the UK, and results from the major Foresight project on flood risks over the next 30-100 years.
