    Annual monitoring of a breakwater provides an early warning system to identify any weak spots in the armouring which can then be repaired before the overall stability of the breakwater is threatened.
  • Monteiro, Pedro; Celliers, Louis (SANCOR, 2012-10)
    The coast of South Africa is a highly dynamic environment. Tidal influences, seasonal variations and the effects of storm events can rapidly and dramatically change the face of the shoreline. This is particularly true for ...
