About this book

While shoreline construction in Alaska is young and unproven, Alaskans can learn from tribulations in other parts of the world. Ten articles by coastal engineering experts, in this book, address coastal processes and trends that drive shoreline retreat and coastal erosion. Topics include nonstructural coastal zone management, successfully proven constructed responses, and limitations of constructed works. Coastal managers will find the information useful in making wise decisions regarding coastal erosion responses for Alaska.

The book is the proceedings of a workshop held in January 2006 in Anchorage, Alaska.
