Abstract: Introduction: In connection with its mission of developing hurricane protection plans for the Atlantic and Gulf shores of the United States, the Corps of Engineers, Department of the Army, has need to know the magnitude of shore erosion which can be expected from hurricane wave attack. To partially fill this need, the information on storm wave erosion available in the files of the Beach Erosion Board is summarized in this report., This report is not intended to be an exhaustive analysis of the data; in fact, the available data are not in sufficient detail to warrant such an analysis. Rather, the data are presented in a summary form in order to acquaint the interested offices of the Corps of Engineers with the general aspects of shore erosion by storm waves.
