Role of groin field for coastal protection considering socio economic aspects
Author : Vallam. Sundar, Ranganathan.Sundaravadivelu
A stretch of the south west coast of Indian peninsula of about 3 km had been experiencing the problem of erosion due to high wave action off the Arabian Sea. A groin field for protecting the coast against erosion was designed and implemented by the first quarter of 2004. While executing the project, a decision to bend at least one of the groins yielded fruitful results towards serving as a landing facility for the country boats, thus enhancing the livelihood of the fishing community. The success of this project has been an eye opener leading to a great demand for similar projects at several locations along the coast. These details of the project are discussed and presented in this paper
