A three-part prescription for healthy beaches is proposed: “backing off”, “bypassing sand”, and “beach nourishment”. So if you love waves and beaches, and care about the future of your favorite beach spot, then read this book while you enjoy the beach. Post-Construction Nourishment Quantities: Large Nourishment Events: 2,, cy Maintenance (beach placement): , cy Total 3,, cy •Nourishment Quantity is approximately 19% of the initial construction quantity. *Only of the 13 miles of restored beach has ever needed nourishment. This book is written for engineers, students of coastal processes and laypersons interested in beach nourishment, which consists of the placement of large quantities of good quality sediment on the beach to advance the shoreline seaward. Learning from the Impacts of Superstorm Sandy summarizes first results from studies of Superstorm Sandy, including: tide gauge measurements of storm surge, stable isotope variation in precipitation, analysis of the effect of beach nourishment among other factors on structural damage, and comparison with past storms through sediment analysis.
Mechanism of beach nourishment is through artificial sand throwing to increase the quantity of sand in the wave field and to reduce the water erosion ability on sandy coast; hardening engineering is done through the strengthening of coast against wave erosion to achieve the revetment goal. Beach Nourishment. In the Corps was authorized to carry out beach nourishment for shoreline protection. Since then, the Corps has participated in beach nourishment projects on approximately miles of shoreline, mostly on the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of the United States. The first phase, the Central Beach Project, will take place along the beaches between 78th Street North on Holmes Beach to approximately 5th Street South in Bradenton Beach. The second phase, the Coquina Beach Project, will take place at 5th Street South in . I Understanding beach nourishment I concept to completion to ~n~+:~~ linp.

The goal of beach nourishment is to widen the beaches which then allows the beach to withstand the natural causes of erosion such as wind, currents, and storms. Because of this continuous nourishment the beaches create a natural barrier of protection allowing for the viability of the coastal buildings homes and infrastructure along our beautiful beaches. Learning from the Impacts of Superstorm Sandy summarizes first results from studies of Superstorm Sandy, including: tide gauge measurements of storm surge, stable isotope variation in precipitation, analysis of the effect of beach nourishment among other factors on structural damage, and comparison with past storms through sediment analysis.
