Coastal protection structures, groins, jetties, breakwaters and harbour entrances, seawalls and revetments, beach nourishment, maintenance of river mouths. Dredging. Estuarine sedimentation. (R)
The basic information about coastal processes, how the hydrodynamics of waves occur in nearshore region, types and characteristics of sediment, the parameters effecting transport mechanism of in the nearshore region
