Coastlines of Turkey

July 6, 2010

A new book chapter about the geomorphological features of Turkish coastlines appeared in the Encyclopedia of the World’s Coastal Landforms by Springer. It is the re-edited version of previously published chapter from The World’s Coasts: Online (2003) written by the famous geomorphologist Prof. Oguz Erol. It is a nice reference chapter to keep in mind. doi:10.1007/978-1-4020-8639-7_10.1
