In January 2006, Alaska Sea Grant sponsored a workshop where coastal engineers, community leaders, scientists, and others discussed strategies and techniques applicable in Alaska for dealing with coastal erosion. This publication is a product of the workshop and contains ten articles by coastal engineering experts that address coastal processes and trends that drive shoreline retreat and coastal erosion. Topics include non-structural coastal zone management, constructed responses that have proved successful, and limitations of constructed works.

Information from these articles will prove useful to coastal managers, civil engineers, state and federal emergency planners, concerned residents, and community leaders facing problems with coastal erosion in Alaska.

The Alaska Sea Grant is a program of the University of Alaska Fairbanks and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration that funds marine research, provides education and extension services, and distributes information about Alaska’s seas and coasts.
