Coastal erosion on the Caribbean coast

examining an ever-changing beach in Costa Rica

Samenvatting

Research regarding relations between coastal vegetation types and accompanying erosion rates. Coastal erosion is a potential threat for ~100 million people that are living within one meter below mean sea level. Furthermore, it poses a threat to wildlife such as marine turtles, and plant communities that are prone to saline stresses. Coastal erosion around the globe has been increasing due to man-made climate change, and so it is very likely to keep increasing in the near future. In order to investigate the relations between vegetation types and their response towards coastal erosion, several surveys have been executed. This has been done on a beach transect of five kilometers on the northeastern Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. Six vegetation types have been determined, namely sandy beach, herbaceous beach, grassland, shrubland, juvenile forest and forest.
