The extent of wave damage to shores is difficult to predict it is advisable to observe the behavior of the shore to determine if some protective action is required. After installation of a shore protection structure it is important to continue monitoring shore behavior and also to inspect for structural changes to determine if the structure is functioning as designed. Optimum and minimum plans for recording shoreline changes and monitoring groins, seawalls, revetments, and offshore breakwaters are given. Simple shore erosion computations and a data analysis program are presented.
