This report is a compilation of abstracts that correspond to oral presentations and posters presented at the fourth principal investigators workshop of the Southwest Washington Coastal Erosion Study. The workshop was held November 17 - 20, 1999 at the Department of Ecology headquarters building in Olympia, WA. For the third consecutive year in November, the workshop convened the entire multi-disciplinary group of scientists and engineers working on the study or on related projects within the Columbia River littoral cell (CRLC). The workshop participants are listed in the List of Attendees section towards the end of this report.

The purpose of this workshop was to bring all study investigators and associated engineers and scientists together to discuss recent work, ongoing tasks, and future research plans in the CRLC. Investigators were asked to present recent data, preliminary interpretations, and research results to invoke discussion and correlation with parallel scientific efforts. The abstracts compiled in this report represent work in progress, and the reader is advised that the information provided herein is preliminary and subject to change.
