Title: Land Loss Along New England Shores
Creators: Glover, Philip L.
Advisor: McKenzie, Garry D.
Issue Date: 1994-03
Abstract: Coastal erosion and sea level rise have been studied for quite some time. A variety of natural and man-made factors have resulted in the loss of property and life along the New England coast. An understanding of these factors and of applied coastal geomorphology, as well as local geology and previous attempts at shoreline management, are of utmost importance to planning authorities. Planning authorities so far have had mixed results in dealing with these problems. Some localities have been able to successfully deal with the encroaching sea, but most areas have either had mixed results or have suffered outright disaster.
