Albanian’s Adriatic Coastline Behaviour and its Morphodynamic State. Durrësi Bay Case

Year 2018, Volume 13, Issue 1, 57 - 61, 30.03.2018

Abstract

This paper tries to present the changes of Durrësi Bay coastline through the works carried out by the Albanian Geological Survey in this area during the last decade. This work was aimed for the monitoring of the coastline behaviour of which compared with the older data collected during years ‘70-‘80 of the past century during the hydrographical and topographic surveys carried out. Using our data and those carried by other hydrographical works we have tried to give for the first time a classification of beach state for the Durrësi Bay, according to the concept of beach morphodynamic states given in the literature.
