Land resources for beach nourishment along the Illinois shore of Lake Michigan.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Lake Michigan littoral sediment resources in Illinois are relatively meagre and are much too fine grained to provide effective supplies for nourishment of eroding beaches. Land-based sand resources, on the other hand, are readily available and are sufficiently coarse in texture. This study discusses the sources of land-based beach nourishment materials and evaluates how well beaches nourished with these materials have held up over time.- from Author
