Abstract:

Submergence affects most U.S. shorelines, and has created serious problems in many localities by increasing flooding, accelerating erosion, altering surface drainage, and causing structural damage. This paper presents selected examples illustrating the problems engineers face in areas of coastal submergence and discusses in general how sea-level changes affect long-term shore processes. Author
