About this book

This well-illustrated book addresses the basics of coastal erosion along Alaska’s huge and diverse shoreline, and reviews options for responses available to residents and managers of coastal resources. Readers will find recommendations for land development that avoid active erosion and thus reduce the risk of later loss, and choices for communities to prevent losses to contiguous coastal property and coastlines. Chapters cover Shoreline Processes, Alaska Coastal Settings, Coastal Erosion Response Options, Revetments and Seawalls, Beach Nourishment and Beach Groins, and Permitting Requirements.
