ABSTRACT
The coastal erosion is a continuous phenomenon on the Black Sea littoral zone of the Romanian territory, which is difficult to stop, and it constitutes one of the main threats to the coastline, therefore it requires efficient and sustainable management. Human activities in the coastal zone of the Black Sea are closely linked to the development of the coastal protection and the construction of protective structures. One approach for the development of coastal protection involves measures that result from a series of "hard" and "soft" structural solutions, methods introduced by coastal engineering and which provide solutions for the Integrated Coastal Zone Management. This paper presents the strategic options for the management of the coastal erosion proposed to be used along the Romanian shoreline and a case study of the coastal protection solutions proposed to be adopted for the southern coast, an analysis of their advantages and disadvantages, the elements of impact on the environment and the expected results following the adoption of the analysed solutions.
