Coastal Literature Search
Regional Sediment Management (RSM) is a relatively recent concept that has gained traction in California and elsewhere. There is a lot of information relating to RSM, however this information is often difficult to find since it was not developed specifically for sediment management concerns.
CSMW held a series of technical workshops in 2003 to gain input from local, regional, state and federal sediment managers as to the types of problems that could be tackled during development of their Sediment Master Plan (SMP). Regulators, reviewers, planners, project proponents and CSMW members all agreed that it would be very useful if the SMP process could assemble technical information related to beach nourishment and RSM and make that information easily available. Stakeholder concerns were grouped into seven broad categories for research and analysis.
CSMW accordingly conducted a review of relevant documentsand prepared a Literature Search report summarizing the study findings, along with the references used to analyze the 7 broad topics. The Literature Search Report was completed in 2004. Links identified below access topical sections within that report. Discussions summarizing the references topical content were a main objective of the report.
Starting in 2008, CSMW began entering these references along with those compiled during preparation of various CSMW informational reports and tools into their Coastal Sediment References Searchable Database. All references subsequently compiled during CSMWs Coastal RSM Plan program were also incorporated into the searchable database.
