Description 
Summary

The reason of beach erosion and washing is shortage of suspended load, therefore it is urgent to elaborate the optimal scheme of coastal protection. The systematic observations are needed to monitor the abrasion processes, as well, as to study migration of sand, depth, volume and near shore velocities. Recommendations and the pilot scheme of coastal protection measures are given to solve the problem.
