We, all enjoy a visit to the beach, and most prefer to see soft white sand.
How to take your beach from this –
to this …..
Dr. Lee Harris of the Florida Institute of Technology and a leading expert in submerged breakwater technologies has overseen many of these projects.
“The basic premise of Reef Ball submerged breakwaters is to mimic natural reef systems and their ability to attenuate waves so that (beach) erosion is managed by natural like processes. The exact amount of attenuation is usually engineered for each project and is controlled by depth, wave climate, number of rows of Reef Balls, spacing of Reef Balls, etc. There have been very extensive wave tank studies to allow us to custom design the desired wave attenuation for a specific project.”
