About Book

Julian Orford, Journal of Coastal Research
"The book is capable of being read by anybody interested in coasts. . . . Its contents transcend the regional viewpoint, as it is a good illustration of problems that may beset many urbanized coastlines. It carries a warning to all countries of the perils of littoral expansion, and on that basis should have a wide readership."

John S. Shelton, American Scientist
"This attractive little volume should go far toward dispelling complacency regarding the stability of cliffs and beaches on windward coasts. One hundred twenty-one photographs, going as far back as 1870, and 23 maps and diagrams document where and when erosion-related changes have taken place along the 115-km Pacific coast of San Diego County."

Book Description
California's coastal zones are areas of extreme vulnerability, subject to the vicissitudes of weather and prone to erosion, landslides, and flooding. Gerald Kuhn and Francis Shepard examine and analyze these threats to coastal stability in a thought-provoking and detailed study of the coastal area of San Diego County from the nineteenth century to the present. An invaluable resource for oceanographers, geologists, meteorologists, coastal engineers, property owners, developers, and planning and regulatory agencies.
