Shoreline response to littoral drift barriers

Shoreline response to littoral drift barriers
Shoreline response to littoral drift barriers
We consider in turn, firstly, examples of shorelines where only natural processes are operating, secondly, shorelines with artificial barriers and whose influence extends both up and down drift and thirdly, shorelines where there is a complex interplay over time between natural processes and artificial interventions, particularly associated with tidal inlets. Barriers making significant reductions in the littoral drift of beach material will cause downdrift erosion and where there is little, or no prior, consultation with property owners in the downdrift area this can lead to claims for damages. This is a serious and worldwide problem which we need to include as a major consequence of the potential shoreline response to a barrier. Finally, we will look into the future and consider how sea level rise and the coastal management responses to it, may impact upon the problems arising with littoral drift barriers.

Abstract

We consider in turn, firstly, examples of shorelines where only natural processes are operating, secondly, shorelines with artificial barriers and whose influence extends both up and down drift and thirdly, shorelines where there is a complex interplay over time between natural processes and artificial interventions, particularly associated with tidal inlets. Barriers making significant reductions in the littoral drift of beach material will cause downdrift erosion and where there is little, or no prior, consultation with property owners in the downdrift area this can lead to claims for damages. This is a serious and worldwide problem which we need to include as a major consequence of the potential shoreline response to a barrier. Finally, we will look into the future and consider how sea level rise and the coastal management responses to it, may impact upon the problems arising with littoral drift barriers.
