AbstractPresently, various energy power plant facilities are being constructed along the coast of the East Sea of Korea. Large-scale breakwaters are also being constructed seaward of these facilities in order to create a tranquil area for the docking facilities of ships as well as to minimize the damaging effects of tsunamis and storm surge. The construction of such large-scale coastal infrastructures has changed the wave-induced current and sediment transport patterns and caused severe erosion and deposition on the beach.
