"Coastal erosion is concerned all around the world, for which is a problem at many coastal sites exacerbated by human activities, and its adaptive management through reasonable mitigation measures is also in the ascendant. China has a coastline of 32,000 km, third of which is occupied by sandy coast. According to the latest report of the State Oceanic Administration (SOA, PRC), 3,255 km soft coast is suffering from severe coastal erosion, 76% of which is sandy coast, the rest contributed by muddy coast. Coastal erosion results in heavy land loss and aggravates financial burden, which is unacceptable. Coastal erosion management of China, aiming at facilitating the sustainable relationship between socioeconomic development and protection of coastal environment, is a systematic process of using scientific technology, administrative and economic policy to realize a socialized, scientific and informative coastal erosion management system in order to minimize the adverse impacts of coastal erosion hazard.
