About this book

Beaches play an important role either as the sole barriers to coastal flooding and erosion, or as part of manmade defences. Beach management in the UK has evolved significantly in design and execution over the last 10 years, motivated by increased expenditure on capital schemes aided by guidance from CIRIA Rreport 153.

This second edition includes the latest information on state-of-art methods, guidance on beach monitoring and maintenance, evaluation of the state and performance of a beach, design, procurement, execution and the after-care of beach improvement schemes. It is divided into four parts and makes use of case studies to illustrate popular management techniques and draw from experience of existing management approaches, reflecting the wealth of experience gained since 1996.
