For the weeks of 11 & 18 May 2016
Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,
PLOS ONE has published, The Effectiveness, Costs and Coastal Protection Benefits of Natural and Nature-Based Defences. "This paper addresses two issues critical for designing restoration projects for coastal protection: (i) a synthesis of the costs and benefits of projects designed for coastal protection (nature-based defences) and (ii) analyses of the effectiveness of coastal habitats (natural defences) in reducing wave heights and the biophysical parameters that influence this effectiveness." You may download the full-text using the link above.
As always, if we've missed anything, please feel free to let me know. You may simply reply to this message, or you may email me directly at nwehner [at] openchannels.org.
