Overview  
The CEM is the modern replacement of the Shore Protection Manual, the basis for coastal engineering practices in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and most standard engineering projects throughout the world. It incorporates contributions from worldwide experts/practitioners and latest research techniques, procedures, and information. The CEM provides broader coverage of all aspects of coastal engineering than the SPM. New sections have been added on navigation and harbor design, dredging and disposal, structure repair and rehabilitation, beach restoration, wetland and low energy shore protection, cohesive shores, risk analysis, field instrumentation, numerical simulation, the engineering process, and other topics.

Next generation of the world's most popular coastal manual developed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
Basis for future coastal engineering studies throughout the world
A major update of the original 1973 Shore Protection Manual (last revised in 1984)
