Abstract:

The Great Lakes shoreline is characterized by areas of erosion and often the most environmentally desirable and cost effective solution for repairing an eroding shore is beach restoration. Considerable research has been done on the biological impacts of beach restoration projects along the Florida Gulf CETN-V-3, Atlantic CETN-V-5 and CETN-V-14 and Pacific CETN-V-7 Coasts, but no prior research has been done in the Great Lakes.
