Description 
Summary

The project investigates the stability conditions of the coastal zone of Kobuleti resort area, which is developing in the autonimous mode under the sharp deficit of the beach building material. An amount of load delivered to the littoral cell by local rivers is not sufficient enough to provide stability. The hydrothermical facilities that were constructed are not effective as well. The new recommendation suggests the refuliation of the beaches by bringing 120 000 T of alluvium from other rivers' basins.
