Twenty-five years after the first Breakwaters & Coastal Structures Conference (sponsored by the Institution of Civil Engineers, UK), the ninth conference took place in Edinburgh in September 2009. In this two-volume set, papers are arranged in sections pertaining to the following themes: design optimization, breakwaters, use of concrete, coastal management, armor unit placement, development of ports and harbors, planning and renewable, seawalls, renewable schemes, breach structure interactions, foundations, coastal defense, shorelines (adapting to change and measuring change), hydrodynamics, revetments, metocean, overtopping, breakwater stability, and breakwaters, coastal processes, and marine structures. This conference premiered a selection of "fringe" papers, that is, "a set of rapid-fire papers on developing issues, current projects and research of specialist interest." There is no subject index (only an author list).
