The full story of how tropical hardwood groynes have been used to recharge 5km of Eastbourne's depleted shingle beaches appears in the latest issue (vol 154 no 1) of the ICE/ IAHR Water and Maritime Engineering journal. At a total cost of £31M, 780,000m3 of shingle was dredged from the Isle of Wight and placed between new groynes made of greenheart from Guyana.

Summaries of all papers can be read at www. waterandmaritime. com.
