The following dissertation focuses on the effect of seasonal variation and sea walls on beach erosion in Filey Bay, Yorkshire. The Yorkshire coast is one of the fastest eroding in Europe, mainly due it its geology. This makes the management of sea defences extremely important. Finding out if sea walls have an effect on erosion is also important because sea defence is . The USACE’s first comprehensive inventory of the coastal erosion problems in Louisiana was part of the National Shoreline Study. This study examined the extent and nature of shoreline erosion and culminated in the publication of a series of .

Coastal erosion is caused by a number of factors, including natural processes such as the wind, rain and waves, as well as human activities, such as the damming of rivers. Additionally, when barrier islands are destroyed, the coastline becomes more susceptible to the destructive forces of storms and hurricanes.

With shorelines shifting around the globe, communities in low lying areas along the Mid West & Wheatbelt coastline are experiencing the brunt of coastal erosion. The main problem with engineering solutions to shoreline erosion is that it is expensive, but it generally solves the problem once stabilizations are put in place.

False Cliffs are often a permanent feature of the shoreline due to the strong rocks that compose them. conditions (Hs 5 1 m) in the study area, erosion is critical in many locations, including the urbanized stretches of coast.
