This proceedings consists of 83 papers presented at the Solutions to Coastal Disasters' 02 Conference held in San Diego, California, February 24-27, 2002. The conference grew from a cooperative effort involving the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the Coasts, Oceans, Ports and Rivers Institute (COPRI) of ASCE, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Coastal States Organization, and the American Association of State Flood Plain Managers. The papers present state-of-the-art information on coastal storms, seismic events, impacts of climate change, and shoreline change. Topics covered include: causes: the research and study of forces and processes that cause or contribute to coastal disasters; Response Mitigation Strategies: the development of methods and strategies to prevent or decrease the adverse effects of coastal disasters; Design and Engineering: detailed examination of engineering approaches to coastal hazards and mitigation, and the consequences of these approaches; and Coastal Management: the policies, planning, and management efforts to minimize or avert coastal disasters.
