Özet

Eastern Black Sea Region, located in the north east of Turkey, has been exposed to severe coastal erosion and shoreline recession for the last 30 years. One of the most important reasons for this problem is the response of the coast on man made activities. As a result of sand mining by people and municipalities, the coastal balance was broken. Another important cause is the construction of a highway by filled soil near the shore. The wave energy increases by reflected waves from these slopes and causes a seawardly sediment transport. Finally, the other important reason for erosion and recession is incorrect site selection, planning and design pf coastal structures such as harbours and fishery harbours.
