Beach erosion is a common challenge up and down Florida’s coastline. Shifting currents, tides, and structural engineering tend to accentuate the impacts of beach erosion and trigger problems. Even without hurricane-force winds and waves, shorelines around the Florida coast are experiencing erosion and washout. To prevent and mitigate the impacts of sea level rise, storm surge, and heavy rain, researchers and environmental planners have employed tactics like living shorelines, oyster reef restoration, and the deployment of artificial reefs.
