Geographical Coverage Georgia Black Sea Coast, v. Grigoleti
Summary Project aims to investigate the sea shore stability prblem in the village of Grigoleti (near the sea port of Poti). An intensity of erosion at this point reaches 2-3 m/year, the nearshore load transportation rate is 200 000 cubic meter/year. For refulation more than 50 000 - 100 000 cubic meter/year material is needed, what at present is unrealistic. Recommendations to construct several breakwaters are given, as well, as an analisis of there influence on the environment.
