by Ch. Laustrup, Danish Coastal Authority, Lemvig, Denmark,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Coastlines of the Southern North Sea


The Danish North Sea coast is a very exposed coast and has therefore suffered from severe erosion problems during centuries. Since 1982, coastal protection has been carried out in an increasing scale. The means used in coastal protection has shifted from hard structures to nourishment. Also the strategy of nourishment has changed. The reasons for this and the future strategy is discussed.
