Summary:

Revetments are sloping shore-parallel structures constructed landward of the beach to dissipate and reduce wave action at the boundary between the sea and land. They typically protect a soft landform such as a dune area or coastal slope, or provide supplementary protection to existing defences such as a dike or sea wall. They are generally very solid, durable structures and are used mainly to address erosion
