Description :
Extreme damage was caused by wave and wind erosion on sand dunes on the Baltic coast near Palanga in Lithuania. Waves breached a wide ‘corridor’ or ‘blowout’ through the coastal sand dune. A progressively widening breached blowout developed. There was a need to protect boundaries (walls) of the blowout from deflation and to encourage sand-dune accretion. The field experiment described in the paper was performed to establish vegetation on the ‘walls’ and base of the blowout to stabilize the feature and stimulate sand-dune accretion. The hypothesis was tested that biogeotextiles could act as complementary measures for possible re-vegetation and temporary prevention of deflation. - (AM)
