A coastline, or seashore, or shoreline is the part where land and oceans meet. This meeting between the sea and land, however, isn’t always fixed because of the tidal phenomenon, which is highly dynamic in nature. Because of this, a coastline will refer to the place where the sea and land seem to be in interaction with each one another. Due to this dynamic nature of the worlds coastlines, measuring them with a high degree of accuracy can become a very tedious job indeed. The ‘coastline paradox’ concept states that the length of any coastline that is part of a landmass is never very well-defined. In fact, the length of coastlines is inversely proportional to the length of the device used for measuring as well as the accuracy of any other measuring device. Nonetheless, the coastlines the countries around the world have been measured as accurately as possible.READ MORE!
