#29-Natural and Artificial Reefs for Surfing & Coastal Protection (2001) [Black]
-In geologic terms, natural reefs are varigated organosedimentary relief structures that are held together by a macroscopic skeletal framework. Similarly, artificial reefs can also be composed of a variety of materials, some of which include limestone boulders, geotextile bags, concrete pipes, etc. Regardless of the reef make-up, most reefs help to serve two objectives: stabilizing beach nourishment and improving surfing conditions. This unique JCR Special Issue looks at using reef resources (both natural and artificial) not only for coastal protection but to also create an appropriate breaking wave that would suit surfers. Dr. Kerry Black, top research scientist at the National Institute of Water and Atmosphere in New Zealand, served as the editor on this collection of publications.
