Christian J. Stewart Consulting

A knowledge and understanding of the key processes that act in shaping our coastlines is the foundation for all other aspects of coastal zone investigation. The interaction of wind, waves, currents, water level change, sediment, geology and morphology govern the way in which we utilize the coastal environment, and govern the types of impacts that can occur as a result of this utilization.

Staff and Associates of Christian J. Stewart Consulting have acquired such knowledge through both education and practical application and conduction of a number of projects including:

Development of a Comprehensive U.S. Great Lakes Shoreline Recession Rate Database;
.
Development of a Comprehensive Great Lakes Shoreline Classification Scheme;
.
An Analysis of Changes in Recession Rates of Various Great Lakes Shoreline Types With Changes in Water Level;
.
Observation and Measurement of Sand Movement and Sediment Transport in Georgian Bay, Lake Huron;
.
Examination of Nearshore Morphology and Alongshore Sediment Transport, Long Point, Lake Erie;
.
An Examination of Coastal Processes Along the Southeastern Shoreline of Lake Huron;
.
An Inventory of Underwater Geomorphological Features, Fathom Five National Marine Park;
.
Development of a Shoreline Erosion Model and Longshore Sediment Transport Pattern, Southeastern Lake Huron;
.
