The Portuguese Environment Agency [http://www.apambiente.pt/index.php?ref=x178] will develop in a short notice a project to evaluate sediment sources offshore (between -20m CD (closure depth) to -35m CD) to identify borrow areas for high magnitude beach nourishment operations in the western coast of Portugal. The project, designated CHIMERA, is part of the ongoing sediment management strategy and policy, assuming the replacement of the sediment budget as the main coastal protection measure in areas with large background erosion.
