Abstract:

To provide guidance for physical data collection of beach nourishment projects and a listing of the components that should be included in a complete pre- and post-fill monitoring program. Project performance monitoring is needed to provide data to improve design, document project behavior and determine if project has met design objectives of storm protection and erosion control. Improvements in design guidance have been hindered by lack of performance data. Critics have declared projects failures and little or no evidence exists on project performance to counter their arguments.
