The idea for this book came to William Thomson during his journey around the coasts of Britain, making maps that show the motions of the sea for people using the beaches and swimming, surfing or sailing in coastal waters. The maps depicted the stream of the sea; this book goes further, describing, explaining and illustrating - with Thomson’s unique graphics - the eight main motions of water that affect the British coastline: tide, stream, rapids, whirlpool, tsunami, bore, wave and rip.
