#40-Coastal Restoration: Past, Present, and Future (2005) [Kentula & Thayer]


 -Coastal restoration usually entails the process by which sediment lost through longshore drift or erosion is replaced along the shoreline. Used as part of a coastal defense scheme, coastal restoration has had a long history of shoring up the shoreline while dealing with the sustainability of the littoral environment. This JCR Special Issue focuses on the past, present, and future evolution of coastal restoration, covering from prior to the 1950s when all that was used were environmentally-detrimental hard structures, all the way up to the innovative restoration techniques of the future that will help to protect the coast and the ecosystem around it. This JCR addition is a necessity for any coastal engineer or ecologist. Serving as one of the principal editors one this collection of publication is Dr. Mary E. Kentula, Chief Wetland Ecologist for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
