Coastal engineering--Environmental aspects
Coasts in developed countries are becoming progressively more rigid and sediment-starved
degrading their status under present conditions and with expected acceleration under future climates. The chapter shows how the conflict is mainly between man and nature
so that artificial coasts will require increasing maintenance. To analyze the situation
we have selected the coast of Barcelona

and transient nourishment coexist with a growing human pressure. The chapter reviews the present coastal strategies
how to evaluate sustainability
and the possible interventions. The emphasis is on
