Coastlines: How Mapmakers Frame The World And Chart Environmental Change

By Monmonier, Mark

Chicago, IL: University of Chicago Press, 2008 Climate change effects sea levels which cause flooding and challenges all aspects of coastal existence as well as the cartographic definition and mapping of coasts. Monmonier takes the reader on a journey across shifting landscapes, cartographic technology, and climate change. He reveals that coastlines are as much a set of ideas, assumptions, and societal beliefs as they are solid black lines on maps.
