This six year study was designed to measure the changes in a cohesive nearshore environment (including bluff erosion and lake botton response) along Lake Michigan's Western shore in response to the construction of a 1,000 meter bluff stabalization project. Field measurements provided information on bathymetry, sand layer thickness, and lakebed downcutting over the nearshore reach of Concordia University in Lake Michigan.
