Abstract: This proceedings contains over 260 papers presented at the 23rd International Conference on Coastal Engineering which was held in Venice, Italy, October 4-9, 1992. The book is divided into seven parts: 1) Characteristics of coastal waves and currents; 2) long waves and storm surges; 3) coastal structures; 4) the Italian coast; 5) coastal processes and sediment transport; 6) coastal, estuarine and environmental problems; and 7) case studies. The individual papers include such topics as the effects of wind, waves, storms and currents as well as the study of sedimentation and beach nourishment. Special emphasis is given to case studies of completed engineering projects. With the inclusion of both theoretical and practical information, these papers provide the civil engineer and related fields with a broad range of information on coastal engineering.
