ABSTRACT Nor Aslinda, A.; Wan Hasliza, W.J., and Mohd Radzi, A.H., 2014. Coastal erosion at Tanjong Piai, Johor, Malaysia. Tanjung Piai, Johor, Malaysia, is a ramsar site, located at the southern-most tip of mainland Asia, and consists mainly of mudflats and mangrove forests. The coast has experienced severe erosion for several decades, in spite of the construction of various coastal defense structures. The reported rates of shoreline retreat were between 2 to 4 m/year. Hydrodynamic modeling… 

MULTI METHOD ANALYSIS FOR IDENTIFYING THE SHORELINE EROSION DURING NORTHEAST MONSOON SEASON

The occurrences of natural hazard is increasing in frequency and brings with it various impacts on coastal areas, such as coastal erosion along the shoreline of Malaysia. The study of National

Assessment of coastal erosion related to wind characteristics in peninsular Malaysia

Malaysia is a maritime country that is located north of the Equator. Hence, it is prone to monsoon changes all the time. Monsoon in Malaysia has contributed to a lot of wind-related disaster.

Coastal Structures as Beach Erosion Control and Sea Level Rise Adaptation in Malaysia: A Review

The shoreline of Malaysia is exposed to threats of coastal erosion and a rise of sea level. The National Coastal Erosion Study, 2015 reported that 15% of an 8840 km shoreline is currently eroding,

Satellite Images for Monitoring Mangrove Cover Changes in a Fast Growing Economic Region in Southern Peninsular Malaysia

The Maximum Likelihood Classification (MLC) technique provided significantly higher user, producer and overall accuracies and less “salt and pepper effects” compared to the Support Vector Machine (SVM) technique, which showed that IM lost 6740 ha of mangrove areas from 1989 to 2014.

Rate of coastal erosion along Tanjung Piai

Tanjung Piai or Piai headland, located in the south of Malaysia, is suffering from an excessive coastal erosion due to wave attack and oil spills. It seems that human activities have triggered the

Impact of port development on the coastline and the need for protection

Coastal areas are varied in physical features. The coastline shows constantly varying nature due to tidal effects and seasonal changes in wave and wind climate. Occasional cyclones in the region also
