Submerged Reef Structures for Beach Erosion Control

This paper presents the use of artificial reef structures as submerged breakwaters, providing both wave attenuation for shoreline stabilization, and habitat for biological and environmental enhancement. The interactions between the coastal process and the reefs and submerged breakwaters are discussed and examples of natural reefs and man-made submerged breakwaters are shown.
