Impacts of Coastal Land Use and Shoreline Armoring on ...

Dec 18, 2017  Shoreline alteration, especially armoring, is another important aspect of land use that affects shallow-water coastal systems. The threats of erosion and property loss from storm surge and sea-level rise motivate land owners to install hardened structures to preserve their properties (Dugan et al. 2011; Gittman et al. 2015).These include vertical seawalls or bulkheads (wooden, concrete, or ...
