VIMS-CCRM Coastal Management Decision Tools
Decision Tree for Currently Defended Shorelines
The Center for Coastal Resources Management has developed a suite of tools intended to help regulators, property owners, and others make decisions regarding coastal resources. This second component consists of a shoreline management decision tree for currently defended shorelines (such as bulkheads and riprap revetments). A tree-like graph of questions and answers about shoreline characteristics for each situation leads the user to the environmentally preferable approach for management of that shoreline.
