Mark Kulp, Dinah Maygarden, and Ioannis Georgiou: Coastal Processes, Hazards and Society at the University of New Orleans part of Coastal Processes, Hazards and Society
This course provides a global perspective of coastal landscapes, the processes responsible for their formation, diversity, and change through time, as well as societal responses to changes in the coastal zones of the planet.
