Coastal Risk Reduction and Living Shorelines In order to determine the most appropriate shoreline protection technique, several site-specific conditions must be assessed.

The following coastal conditions, along with other factors, are used to determine the combinations of green and gray solutions for a particular shoreline. This book River developed from lecture notes for a course on Coastal Dynamics and Shoreline Protection addressed to students of Environmental Sciences.

Below is a list of all courses that have been offered through the Coastal Training Program. We typically offer classes until the demand wanes.

If there is a class that you would like to see offered again, please let us know, and we'll keep track of the requests. Protection against Wave­based Erosion The guidelines below address the elements of shore structure design common to nearly all erosion control structures subject to direct wave action and run-up.

Minimize the extent waterward. Erosion control structures should be designed with the smallest waterward footprint Size: KB.

Book Description. Living Shorelines: The Science and Management of Nature-based Coastal Protection compiles, synthesizes and interprets the current state of the knowledge on the science and practice of nature-based shoreline protection. This book will serve as a valuable reference to guide scientists, students, managers, planners, regulators, environmental and engineering.

The Chesapeake Bay, Atlantic Coastal Bays, and their tidal tributaries include 6, miles of shoreline. Approximately 4, miles of that shoreline are eroding. Approximately 65% of the shoreline has low to moderate erosion ( feet/year), while 3% of the shoreline experiences moderate to high erosion of at least 4 feet per year (DNR).File Size: 2MB.

Information and Resources Beyond the Hudson River (those familiar with engineering concepts, though not necessarily coastal/shoreline protection specifically) that examines shoreline protection tactics within the context of cost.

The Science and Management of Nature-Based Coastal Protection. A book that provides a background and history. As human occupation of the coastlines of Chesapeake Bay grew, the application of shoreline erosion control structures intensified.

The predominant form of shoreline protection has been armoring with a bulkhead or riprap (stone) revetment (Bilkovic & Mitchell, ).The proliferation of armoring has fragmented natural habitats and introduced novel habitat to most coastal.

The FEPS is a modular software system developed by Baird & Associates, and the overall modeling framework is fundamentally sound. It links bathymetric, topographic, and land use data in a GIS platform with engineering models intended to characterize the physical processes involved in coastal erosion and flooding, including wave generation through loss of shoreline.

original shoreline and then filling behind it with material dredged from the Lake Michigan bottom, sand from the Indiana shoreline, general construction debris, alley waste and even debris from the Chicago Fire, in places up to a mile away from the original shoreline.

Inthe construction of the existing shoreline protection structures began. See also. For more information on shore protection measures, see also Hard coastal protection structures; The article Dealing with coastal erosion is related to the article Types and background of coastal erosion and presents why we need to protect the coast and how to protect against dune erosion and structural erosion.; References ↑ Mangor, Karsten.

Given increasing coastal urban growth and projected sea-level rise, there is great potential for restoration actions that not only enhance shoreline health but also better protect coastal. The Sea Turtle Protection Ordinance protects threatened and endangered sea turtles, which nest on Charlotte County beaches.

This code addresses construction within the sea turtle lighting zone in Charlotte County. The Sea Turtle Lighting Zone was developed by Charlotte County as a means to identify areas outside the Coastal Construction Control Line which pose additional.
