Item description for Beach Nourishment: Theory and Practice (Advanced Series on Ocean Engineering) by Robert G. Dean, Dennis Boutsikaris, Michael Tellinger, Angela Dawe, John Kastronis, Tu Weiming, Frances F. Berdan & Gerard S. Sloyan...
This book is written for engineers, students of coastal processes and laypersons interested in beach nourishment, which consists of the placement of large quantities of good quality sediment on the beach to advance the shoreline seaward. The improvement of project performance through proper design and the predictability of performance are emphasized. The overall longevity of a project is addressed as are local erosional areas. The roles which wave height, project length and sediment quality play in project performance are addressed quantitatively. The results are illustrated through reference to a number of monitored nourishment projects. Biological and economic aspects of beach nourishment are addressed.
