Resources

Coastal Erosion Resources (and some other general coastal processes resources encountered while researching):

  1. http://oceanworld.tamu.edu/resources...talerosion.htm -- general information on the topic
  2. http://coastalchange.ucsd.edu/st3_basics/coasts.html -- has some excellent animations of longshore drift etc.  Other pages on the site would also be excellent sources of information, such as this page http://coastalchange.ucsd.edu/st3_basics/budgets.html about sediment flux.
  3. http://instaar.colorado.edu/gallerie...astal-erosion/ video may be useful (haven't actually watched it, but it's supposed to include some time lapse sequences of coastal erosion)
  4. http://csdms.colorado.edu/wiki/Coastal_animations collection of animations related to lots of different coastal processes, not just erosion
  5. http://montereybay.noaa.gov/new/2012/erosion.html about erosion in Monterey Bay
  6. http://coastalmanagement.noaa.gov/in...easements.html stopping erosion -- this source is more about policy than actual ocean science
  7. http://oceanservice.noaa.gov/facts/s...-armoring.html methods of preventing erosion
  8. http://coast.noaa.gov/archived/beach...edirect=301ocm lots more about preventing beach erosion
  9. http://coastalmanagement.noaa.gov/in...finitions.html more stabilization, includes information on methods other than building crazy structures
  10. http://www.seagrant.sunysb.edu/glcoa...nprocesses.pdf huge amount of information about coastal erosional processes in general
