10. Location of Misawa fishing port in Aomori Prefecture. May 26, 2010 24 13:35 9in x 6in b807-ch02 Japan’s Beach Erosion: Reality and Future Measures Fig. 11. Aerial photographs around Misawa fishing port taken from 1966 to 1997. In 1982, a straight breakwater was constructed along the first breakwater, and the construction of north and offshore breakwaters began. Until this stage, the area where the shoreline advanced further extended south of the port, whereas the shoreline receded on the north side.

Gently sloping revetment had subsided significantly. These damages were caused by the gravel mound beneath the slope being washed away through the gap between the toe of the revetment and the seabed lowered by the scouring associated with the beach erosion, and it became difficult for the concrete blocks to withstand their weight. Since the coast erodes because of the exhaustion of sand supply from upcoast, the seabed elevation in front of the revetment may decrease in the long term. Taking this condition into account, the possibility of subsidence damage of the revetment occurring as shown in Fig.

25 increases. The gently sloping revetment shown in Fig. 25 has been built only for a longshore distance of 200 m. 26 was taken from the end (D in Fig. 19(d)) of this gently sloping revetment, looking south. In this photograph, another gently sloping revetment can be seen at the far side. Between two gently sloping revetments, the coastline greatly retreats downcoast, forming a high scarp. The scarp height just downcoast of the south end of the gently sloping revetment reached around 3 m, as shown May 26, 2010 38 13:35 9in x 6in b807-ch02 Japan’s Beach Erosion: Reality and Future Measures Fig.
