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

    1. oceanworld.tamu.edu/resources...talerosion.htm -- general information on the topic
    2. 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 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. 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. 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. coast.noaa.gov/archived/beach...edirect=301ocm lots more about preventing beach erosion
    9. coastalmanagement.noaa.gov/in...finitions.html more stabilization, includes information on methods other than building crazy structures
    10. www.seagrant.sunysb.edu/glcoa...nprocesses.pdf huge amount of information about coastal erosional processes in general
