dc.description.abstract The primary objective of the workshop and these proceedings is to share with a broader audience the valuable information and extensive dialogue that took place amongst over 100 individuals who attended the third in a series of workshops on the science and management of coastal landforms in Massachusetts. The workshop took place at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), Woods Hole, MA on February 28, 2002. The individuals who attended the workshop are actively engaged in planning, managing, regulating, engineering, educating, and studying the interaction of human activities with coastal landforms and coastal processes, particularly erosion control related activities. This workshop titled, Stabilizing Dunes and Coastal Banks using Vegetation and Bioengineering, was a natural follow-up to two previous workshops: Can Humans and Coastal Landforms Co-exist, held at WHOI, January 24, 2001 (proceedings published as WHOI Technical Report #WHOI-2001- 14), and Coastal Landform Management in Massachusetts, held at WHOI October 9-10, 1997 (proceedings published as WHOI Technical Report #WHOI-98-16). This workshop had a very practical, applied focus, providing state-of-the-art scientific and case history engineering applications of non-structural/bioengineering and coastal vegetation-related erosion control and wildlife habitat enhancement techniques. The history and theory of bioengineering in coastal areas was discussed as well. en
