  • There is also the work of Akira Miyawaki, a botanist and plant ecologist, in Japan on creating tsunami barriers using native trees. For example see: https://www.navdanya.org/attachments/phyto_0571_Miyawaki_wm-1.pdf . ------------------------------ John Kretzmann P.E., M.ASCE Santa Fe NM -------- ...

  • It is nice reading the interesting discussions contributed by ASM Ahmed, JF Chapman and D Sherman. As some of you are aware, preventative mitigation measures such as configuring, sizing or modification of bays or embayments are indeed done in small scales.
