    • For translation of terminology in six languages consult;
    • The Coastal Wiki ( is a fast expanding source of information regarding Coastal Morphology, Coastal Engineering and Coastal Zone Management;
    • The Coastal and Hydraulics laboratory of the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) gives on-line access to the Coastal Engineering Manual (CEM) (type ‘Coastal Engineering Manual’ in a search engine like Google):

    “Coastal Engineering Manual (CEM)3 provides a single, comprehensive technical document that incorporates tools and procedures to plan, design, construct, and maintain coastal projects. This engineering manual will include the basic principles of coastal processes, methods for computing coastal planning and design parameters, and guidance on how to formulate and conduct studies in support of coastal flooding, shore protection, and navigation projects. New sections are being added on navigation and harbour design, dredging and disposal, structure repair and rehabilitation, wetland and low-energy shore protection, risk analysis, field instrumentation, numerical simulation, the engineering process, and other topics.”

    3. The CEM used to be called Shore Protection Manual (Shore Protection Manual. 1984).
