This webinar will focus on the basics of bioengineering techniques for coastal shores as well as new developments in these techniques. Dunes, beach nourishment, coastal banks, fringe marshes and associated vegetation will be covered. Rebecca Haney will present information developed for StormSmart Properties, a series of fact sheets developed by the MA Coastal Zone Management Branch, targeted towards property owners working with consultants and designers. These factsheets describe a variety of measures to reduce property damage and erosion while minimizing impacts on natural shorelines. Seth Wilkinson will discuss new developments in various bioengineering techniques for coastal banks and fringe marshes and present case studies to illustrate the techniques.
