BEACH NOURISHMENT AND DUNE PROTECTION

Hans H. Dette, Arved J. Raudkivi

Abstract


The environmentally favoured method of beach maintenance by nourishment with sand raises the question of minimization of the average annual sand requirement. In the following sand loss estimation models are compared to field data. A concept for protection of the dry beach and dune areas against erosion during stormtides is discussed as a means of reducing the required sand volumes for the beach maintenance.
