Abstract: This paper presents the beach response at Redington Shores, Florida to a detached offshore breakwater constructed in 1986. This paper summarizes the initial shoreline response described in Dean and Pope (1987) for the pre- and post-construction period, September 1984 to November 1986. The subsequent shoreline changes monitored and documented by the Jacksonville District (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, 1989) for the post-construction period, April 1986 to February 1988, and the post-renourishment shoreline response data are analyzed and interpreted along with regional wave climate.
