Abstract:

A high level of activity relating to use and management of shorelines and the coastal zone is in evidence. The study is an assessment of the significance of legislation, policies and actions affecting the coastal zone at all levels of government. The assessed activities are interpreted for their significance to Corps of Engineer programs in shore protection. The study concludes that the states assert their authority for the coastal zone management function and the Federal agencies should help identify and perform activities complimentary to state programs. Further the Corps is advised to formulize its technical support relationships with state coastal zone agencies, develop and prepare educational materials to assist in coastal zone problems, expand research in coastal problems and explain remote sensing technology.
