This article reviews coastal geomorphological research published in New Zealand or international journals which has been carried out in New Zealand during the past ten years. All coastal environments are covered, including tidal inlets, estuaries and lagoons, beach, surfzone, nearshore and shelf environments, and rocky coasts. Applied coastal studies are also covered. While the New Zealand coastal science community remains relatively small, a significant body of work has been carried out, much of it innovative and unique. However, with 11 000 km of very diverse coastline covering 13 degrees of latitude available for study, there are many areas, geographical as well as disciplinary, that remain poorly researched.
