Abstract


The rising sea level issue affecting U.S. coastal policy is reviewed, and the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers coastal role is summarized. Three case studies are provided to demonstrate the successful application of several structural devices available to solve different coastal problems. The coastal engineer, and other scientists, should contribute significantly to the information upon which society bases its decisions on use of the shoreline.
