Abstract


The paper analyses the beach erosion which affected the coast of Monasterace Marina, Italy, where the Kaulon archaeological site is located. The site extends along the coast for 1 km, it is made of an ancient town, a museum and a Doric Temple which are inside a sand dune along the coast. During the winter season between 2013-2014, two severe storms completely eroded the beach, reaching to the Doric Temple, which was partially destroyed. All the possible causes of the erosional phenomenon are investigated through the analysis of cartography, wave, weather and climate data, and the use of soil. This analysis is carried out for different historical periods over the last 60 years. Also, a quick and temporary solution is described.
