Shifting Sands


Author(s):

Barrier islands must constantly rebuild themselves, else they will soon disappear. Islands migrate to the west, and winds and ocean overwash are critical factors in this movement. Lloyd discusses how construction on the Outer Banks inhibits these two factors and how this will affect the islands' survival.
