Climate Change Impacts on Ocean and Coastal Law

Patrick W. Krechowski

This chapter provides an overview of coastal construction management and beach nourishment policies in those states with sandy beaches that have been most impacted by severe storm events in the past two decades. In particular, the beaches of Florida are used as examples following the impacts of Hurricane Dennis and Tropical Storm Sandy. The aspects of coastal regulations to be examined focus on allowable coastal construction, including “rebuilding,” beach and dune system protection, and public access in light of severe storm damage, sea- level rise, or both. The practicality, cost, and feasibility of continuing to “rebuild” or renourish populated beaches in the new era of climate change is assessed.

Keywords:   coastal construction, beach renourishment, rebuilding, storm damage, sea-level rise
