The coastal zone is among the most dynamic and ecologically significant landscapes on Earth, and climate change places an increased impetus on understanding its processes and forms. This session seeks presentations exploring recent advances and observations in coastal geomorphology based upon field observations, physical experiments, modeled landscapes, and interactions between human and physical systems. We invite presentations focused on any coastal geomorphology, including, but not limited to: sandy beaches and/or dunes; lagoons, marshes, mud flats, and estuaries; or rocky and coral coasts.
