Abstract

Management strategies for the bay shore are dependent on a variety of factors. Physical processes will decide the alternatives that are available to respond to erosion. Studies have been conducted that establish design and construction criteria for shore protection alternatives that have proved effective in responding to erosion. Population, economic development, and, technical and financial resources at the local level will determine which alternatives are chosen and to what extent the bay shore will be managed. This paper provides 3 case studies of management strategies in response to erosion of the Delaware Bay shoreline in New Jersey.
