Call for Manuscripts: Dedicated Issue of Shore & Beach

“Hurricane Sandy - 10 Years Later”

The American Shore & Beach Preservation Association (ASBPA) invites manuscripts on “Hurricane Sandy - 10 Years Later” for a dedicated issue of ASBPA’s journal Shore & Beach (S&B).  Hurricane Sandy was one of the costliest natural disasters in U.S. history, causing in excess of $75 billion in damages and resulting in 159 deaths. Sandy highlighted deficiencies in coastal engineering, coastal planning, coastal regulation and communication. The goal of the dedicated issue is to look back at the past decade with a critical eye and evaluate where we came from, where we are, and where we need to go to ensure the lessons of the past are not lost.

This special issue will be published in the fourth quarter of 2023, and guest edited by Dr. Tom Herringon, Kim McKenna, Dr. Jon Miller, and Dr. Dan Barone.

Topics of special interest to this dedicated issue include the following:

  • Improvements in forecasting and communicating storm impacts

  • Advances in coastal protection system planning/design

  • Role of climate change in past/future coastal disasters
