Shoreline Erosion Analysis

Coast & Harbor Engineering performed a feasibility study for the Texas General Land Office as part of a shoreline stabilization project to identify causes of erosion and determine feasible structural and/or non-structural engineered alternatives to stabilize the shoreline for the next 25 years. CHE conducted a coastal engineering analysis, developed a sediment budget, and simulated wave transformations, wave-generated currents, sediment transport, and erosion/accretion processes to a range of long-term solution alternatives. The recommended alternative included a beach nourishment and nearshore detached breakwaters.
