Geographical Coverage Black Sea coastal zone, Cape Pitsunda
Summary

         The lab research  was conducted to elaborate recommendations on urgent  measures to ensure  stabilization of the beach. The lab investigations have shown, that the recommended underwater suspended load catching  trapezoid prism-modal profile is effective  and prevents the further movement of the sediment masses down the slope. The specified structure also contributes to the formation and stabilization of the littoral cell and coastal line. According to  the preliminarily laboratory studies, the  recommended structural decision, including, as well, the  beach protection wall system,  can restore and ensure the load balance equilibrium of the  Cape Pitsunda.
