Sérgio R. Dillenburg, Patrick A. Hesp ,"Geology and Geomorphology of Holocene Coastal Barriers of Brazil "Springer December 5, 2008 ISBN: 3540250085 PDF 380 pages 30.58mb
This is the first book to cover Holocene geology and geomorphology of the entire 8,500 kilometers of the Brazilian coast. It is aimed at third and fourth year undergraduates, post-graduate students, scientists and managers. It characterizes the coast in terms of holocene geology, geomorphology, oceanographic conditions and the location of the barrier types. Separate chapters outline the types of barrier in each state, beginning in the south and proceeding to the north. Special emphasis is placed on the stretches of coast where the detailed morphology and stratigraphy of barriers has been previously determined.
