Hybrid shoreline protection – It Soal, IJsselmeer

Lessons Learned

  • Man-made structures (in this case a recurved breakwater) can help to reach the goal of creating terrestrial habitats and reaching nature values.
  • Such structures can help create shelter and long-term stability of sandbanks in otherwise for the Frisian coast- relatively dynamic circumstances.
  • These lessons have been taken into account in the design off the Sand Engine IJsselmeer coast
