... The related shoreline changes will have economic and environment~ impacts that will require decisions to define a proper response. For example, for sandy shorelines, the possible remedies to erosion range from shoreline stabilization (through beach restoration or protective structures)
From page 32...
... In 1930, the U.S. Congress authorized a successor and permanent organization, the Beach Erosion Board, now the Coastal Engineering Research Center.
From page 33...
... Because of this, categorization of engineering problems should be made on the basis of "waves" or "no waves, and this differentiation should extend to the effects of a sea level rise; those involving wave action differ fundamentally from those that do not. Before discussing the effect of rising sea level on specific types of coastal projects, there are some principles that qualified coastal engineers generally accept as valid: 1.
