Multi-level assessment of ecological coastal restoration in South Texas

Multi-level assessment of ecological coastal restoration in South Texas

Ecological Engineering: 4, 435-440

Adaptive management can be a very useful tool for assessing and improving coastal ecological engineering restoration projects. A shoreline restoration project using ecological engineering approaches to mitigate coastal erosion was developed and implemented in 2003 at Loyola Beach, Baffin Bay, TX. The project incorporated riprap, fiber matting, geotextile, and vegetation as an alternative to conventional hard structures for erosion control.
