Beach and Dune Restoration by Karl F. Nordstrom

Book Description

This book analyzes the tradeoffs involved in restoring beaches and dunes on intensively developed coasts, the most effective approaches to use, and the ways to educate and involve stakeholders. It identifies restoration strategies that enhance natural processes and make coastal landforms more dynamic while maintaining their value for shore protection. In addition to ecological values, the concept of restoration is expanded to include physical, economic, social and ethical principles. Compromise management solutions are suggested to accommodate the needs of different user groups, including municipal managers and individual property owners. The means of overcoming inertia or antagonism to environmentally friendly actions are also discussed. The book is written for coastal scientists, engineers, planners and managers, and serves as a useful supplementary reference text for courses in coastal management, ecology and environmental ethics.
