Beach Erosion: Nature's Work-in-Progress

Record #:
Beach erosion is constant. To deal with it, the Coastal Resources Commission uses building relocation and beach renourishment (moving sand from others areas onto eroded beaches). Bulldozing is used as an emergency. Sandbagging is used as a temporary fix. Beach renourishment is controversial, and Smith summarizes the views of the public and environmentalists.
