Coping with Beach Erosion is a practical guide for beach users, builders and homeowners as well as other coastal stakeholders. Written in a language and style accessible to the non-specialist, it provides expert advice concerning the dangers to consider when buying property and constructing houses, hotels etc. in erosion-prone beach areas. The question of how to conserve existing beaches is dealt with by demonstrating well tested shoreline protection and other management measures for current and potential erosion and accretion problems. Amply cross-referenced and illustrated, this user-friendly book includes a glossary of terms and a subject index. Its popularized and well structured guidelines are based on technical information gathered over a decade and a half of field studies jointly sponsored by UNESCO and the Sea Grant College Program of the University of Puerto Rico.
