PROTECTION OF SANDY COASTS IN DEPENDENCE OF THE DUNE - BEACH - TYPE

Heie Focken Erchinger

Abstract


Barrier dunes are the natural protective structures against flooding the low-lying land during storm tides. Their strength and resistance are to be estimated in consideration of the total dune-beach-profile. For standardization of dune-beach-profiles 3 types are to be distinguished. For each of these types the necessary and the possible actions for stabilization of the barrier dunes and also of inshore dune areas are described.
