Stevens and Monmouth Presidents to co-chair ASBPA National Scientific Shore and Beach Conference

HOBOKEN, N.J. -- Dr. Harold J. Ravech, president of Stevens Institute of Technology and Vice Adm. Paul G. Gaffney II, president of Monmouth University, West Long Branch, N.J., will serve as honorary co-chairs for the American Shore and Beach Preservation Association Annual Fall Conference to be held at the Ocean Place Resort and Spa, Long Branch, from Oct. 9 to 11.

The international forum on ocean and coastal issues will mark the 80th anniversary of ASBPA, which was formed in New Jersey. The Jersey Shore Partnership, New Jersey's leading advocacy organization for shore issues, is a member of ASBPA and is helping to host the conference.

The conference will feature national and international scientists and scholars in the fields of oceanography, the coastal environment, beach preservation and other issues of importance to the shore communities and the millions of people who live near, or benefit from, the coastal environment. The ASBPA (www.asbpa.org) is the pre-eminent national coastal advocacy organization, which works on issues unique to shore states.

Stevens Institute has accomplished ground breaking work concerning the interaction of environmental systems and in research involving maritime systems, including port and harbor security. The Institute has been actively involved in researching and evaluating methods of shore protection and structures that will prolong beach replenishment and has led the way in ocean and coastal research.

Stevens has provided technical assistance to shore municipalities to study problems of shore protection and to find alternatives to protect beaches and property from storm damage. The Institute works with New Jersey Sea Grant on educational and outreach programs on shore issues. It also is a leader in the integrated coastal observing and monitoring system that provides hourly information on the coast, shoreline erosion and beach action.
