Coastal zones: design considerations
I need help finding information regarding climatic considerations in coastal areas.

In my opinion, it's about the influence of solar radiation, humidity, wind, etc. on building design.

Unfortunately, I haven't found any helpful websites. Any suggestions?

Hi Elin,

If you're looking for some general guidelines, the FEMA guides for Coastal Building Materials, Coastal Building Success and Failures and Introduction to Residential Coastal Construction may be of some interest (all are pdf files).

You'll find much more if you Google search for keywords "corrosion coastal buildings", "coastal construction", etc.
