Description: Technical Report
Abstract: This report is a compendium of beach nourishment project characteristics for 20 typical U.S. shore segments for which the use of beach fill sediments from offshore borrow source areas has been suggested as a remedy for shore erosion. Data are provided to establish a basis for long-range planning of nourishment projects and systems. For each example project, the data provided consist of: history and description, location and bathymetry, fill and borrow site characteristics and specifications, design fill section, sediment grain size distributions, and fill calculations.
