Realistic Economic Benefits from Beach Nourishment
|Dean, Robert G.
|A method is presented and illustrated with examples to establish appropriate storm damage reduction and recreational benefits from beach nourishment projects. Unlike previous methods, benefits to project adjacent areas are recognized due to sand transport out of the project area and deposition on adjacent beaches. Assuming homogeneity along the shoreline, the character of storm damage reduction and recreational benefit relationships are such that sand transported from a project area and deposited on adjacent beaches always results in an increase rather than a reduction in benefits is the establishment of a proportional damage curve for upland structures as a function of beach width and storm return period.
