AbstractThe U. S. Army Coastal Engineering Research Board (CERB), established on 7 November 1963 by Public Law No. 172, of the 88th USA Congress, has had a major impact on the field and profession of coastal engineering for over 50 years. The CERB replaced the Beach Erosion Board (BEB) (created in 1930) and provided oversight to the Coastal Engineering Research Center (CERC), now the Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory. The greatest names in USA coastal engineering and science have served on the CERB and helped to define the course of USA coastal research and practice.
