An understanding and knowledge of coastal environment and processes involved is necessary for any coastal management or planning and coastal engineering endeavour especially when dealing with the coastal erosion problem. The main objectives of' this study are to carry out assessment on the current state of erosion, determine the causes of coastal erosion and evaluate the performance of existing protection measures. The study covers approximately 84 km long of shoreline in southern part of Terengganu. The erosion profile, coastal features and prx: rss, environmental data, causes of erosion, erosion control measures and some previous studies arc discussed in the literature review part as a basis for the assessment of the current state of erosion in the study area. The data and information from local authority, journals, reports, text books and also local communities were collected throughout the year. Samples of beach sediment are collected during the site visit. The samples are then tested in the laboratory through dry sieve analysis. The test is conducted to determine the average sirs, type and particle size distribution of the beach sediment. 'Ihe results arc analyzed and combined with other data to classify the state of erosion into one of the erosion categories (critical. significant and acceptable. Possible longshore sediment transports arc calculated at several locations where the erosion is critical and significant. From the trend in beach profile, particle site, beach width and beach slope, it can be concluded that many locations in southern coastline of Terengganu arc still hieing significant and critical erosion. the results of' this study provide valuable data and information for further research and implementation.
