dc.descriptionSpecial Report-
dc.descriptionAbstract: This report is published to provide engineers and scientists with guidelines on using coastal marsh vegetation as a shore erosion control measure in coastal regions of the United States. This erosion control alternative is suitable for relatively sheltered shorelines such as those found on bays, sounds, and estuaries. For various reasons this alternative has not been found to be effective in the Great Lakes, Alaska, or Hawaii. Criteria are provided on (1.) determining site suitability, (2.) selecting plant materials, (3.) planting procedures and specifications, (4.) estimating project costs, and (5.) assessing impact.-
