Atlas of Bedforms in the Western Mediterranean by Jorge Guillén, Juan Acosta, Francesco Latino Chiocci, Albert

By Jorge Guillén, Juan Acosta, Francesco Latino Chiocci, Albert Palanques

This atlas illustrates the features of present-day bedforms, from the coastline to deep-sea environments, and it's also brief experiences of the most mechanisms that generate such bedforms. The atlas is geared toward the examine neighborhood, as well as scholars, the general public at huge and corporations with pursuits within the marine setting. The publication is split into seven sections composed of a couple of brief chapters: 1) bedform research and the most actual approaches, 2) bedforms within the coastal region, three) bedforms on prodeltas and taken care of bedforms, four) bedforms at the continental shelf, five) bedforms and benthos, 6) bedforms in submarine canyons and seven) slope and deep-sea bedforms. This atlas deals a accomplished, although no longer exhaustive, view of the range of bedforms and linked methods and of the morphological and temporal scales within the enclosed tideless western Mediterranean Sea.
