A Presentation By Vivian Ho

Vivian Seabright jetty2 smallReal estate along the coast is no doubt desirable, but development on sandy beaches and stone cliffs is constantly threatened by wave action, winter storms, and the existence of the structures themselves. In an effort to protect our homes, businesses, public buildings, and infrastructure, people came up with many forms of coastal engineering to slow the erosion of the land. Coastal armoring seemed like it would protect manmade structures, but it is disruptive to the sediment flow of the beaches, and may even weaken the surrounding coastline or undermine the buildings it was meant to protect. How can we enjoy the bounty of the ocean without endangering human lives and property? What is the best course of action to deal with preexisting structures and armoring?
