Abstract

Year by year, the coastal zones are constantly changing due to the action of waves, tides and human impact. Several factors and events have an impact in changing the shoreline from small time intervals, for a few seconds to several centuries. The shoreline has been particularly influences by the human impact over the years, especially by the location of hydro-technical construction to prevent erosion or floods. Thus, the problem of coastal erosion appears as an effect of sediment transport, modifying shore morphology. Sediments transport occurs after the action of waves and currents transversely and longitudinally shore. In this paper, we intend to study the hydrodynamic of the Romanian Coastal zone and the wave regime alteration due to the protection systems.
