Coastal processes and engineering

Natural coastal hazards along the Great Lakes affect municipalities, homeowners and businesses. As the demands of coastal development and investment continue to increase, so do the possibilities for increased loss of valuable property, habitat and life.

Sound coastal engineering information on coastal erosion, waves, rip currents, changing water levels, flooding potentials, bluff instability and best practices for shoreline management are all needed. Wisconsin Sea Grant meets that need.
