Get this from a library! Engineering and design: beach erosion control and shore protection studies.. [United States. Army. Corps of Engineers.]. There are natural defenses for shoreline protection. Gently sloping shorelines, beaches and marshes are a good defense against erosion. A beach prevents average high water from reaching upper areas of the shore. Marsh plants decrease the rate of erosion by breaking up waves and trapping sediment carried by currents along the Size: 2MB.

The initial phase was completed in January and published as IWR Report PS-1, Shoreline Protection and Beach Erosion Control Study, Phase I: Cost Comparison of Shoreline Protection Projects of the U.S. Army Corps of Size: 2MB. The Shoreline Erosion Control Program can assist in the planning and construction of all types of beach erosion control and shoreline stabilization measures, including hard structures like seawalls. This program can fund up to 50 percent of nonfederal project costs. Preventing and Repairing Shoreline Erosion Shorelines of stormwater ponds are prone to erosion because there are many forces working to undermine the stability of the bank. In many communities, property lines and HOA easements are drawn relative to the pond shore.   To implement effective beach erosion control and coastal ecosystem protection strategies, coastal managers need information on long- and short-term changes taking place along the coast, including beach profiles, changes from erosion, and wetlands changes from inundation. Topographic and bathymetric data can now be rapidly and accurately acquired at various spatial .
