fhc study is conducted to assess the current status of* coastal erosion and
development along the northern I erengganu coastline and propose possible coastal
protection measures for the critical stage coastline. Based on the National Coastal
Erosion Studs (NCES 1986), 62.5% of Terengganu coastline which approximately.
152.4 km long was found to be eroded. Since I986, many developments have been
constructed along the Terengganu coastline. However no latest overall study to
asscss the coastal erosion due to the development of new structure along the
f crengganu coastline is yet conducted. This study begins on January 2009 and
completed on November 2009, The area of study is boated starting from the
boundary of'I'crcngganu and Kelantan state at Pantai Teluk Bayu,Besut (North 5°
50.286' Uast 102" 32.727') and end at I'antai Mcrung, Sctiu (North 5" 12.2K2' last
102" 56.722') near to the Merabang Panjang Village. Due to the time, transportation
and cost constraints, locus were given to the coastline which identified to he in the
critical stage during the first assessment in March 2009. All data required for this
study are obtained from the research done using internet and libraries, site
assessment, sieve analysis, and interviews. Aerial photos obtained from Google
Earth software are used to estimate the coastal erosion rate. For this study, northern
I erengganu coastline is divided into ten reaches, Rased on the analysis of the data,
three reaches along the northern I'erengganu coastline were found to he in the
critical stage namely Pantai Teluk Bayu(Reach 1). Pantai Dataran Kuala Besut(Reach 2), and Pantai Merang(Reach 10). The results of this study can he used in
future to assist in the planning and development of the northern l ercnggunu
