To investigate the risk of shoreface nourishment to the coastal benthic community and its consumers the RIACON (Risk Analysis of Coastal Nourishment Techniques) project was started in 1994 under the auspices of the MAST 2 programme of the Commission of the European Communities. In The Netherlands effects of shoreface nourishment were studied North of the island of Terschelling. Two aspects were included: effects of sand depostition at the nourishment site and effects of subaqueos sand extraction at the borrow site. The study regading the risk to the benthic fauna of the shoreface is presented in part A of this report. The effects of subaqueous extraction of the sand needed for the nourishment are dealt with in part B.
