    The rise in temperature is also quickly melting glaciers. This is causing the sea level to rise faster than organisms can adapt to it. The rising sea erodes beaches more quickly. In the Chesapeake Bay area in the eastern United States, it is estimated that a rise in sea level of 8 to 10 centimeters (3 to 4 inches) will cause enough erosion toFile Size: 53KB.

While the erosion takes a hiatus, the community is taking action. “We’re making plans to move a couple homes, hopefully this winter, and two other buildings here that belong to the city." Slats explained. "Hopefully the erosion doesn’t beat us.".

forests and trees provide some coastal protection and that the clearing of coastal forests and trees has increased the vulnerability of coasts to erosion (Figure ) — such as in Viet Nam (Mazda et al., ; Cat et al., ), Malaysia (Othman, ), Indonesia (Bird and Ongkosongo, ; Nurkin, ; Tjardana, ), Sri Lanka (Samarayanke, ), India (Malini and Rao, ;File Size: KB.

the offshore reserves of beach sand may be swept over the edge of the island shelf into deep water – gone forever. Beach recovery can also be inhibited by poor beach management, such as removing protective seagrass beds, mining beach sand and constructing the wrong kind of hardened sea defences such as seawalls and groynes.

unconsolidated sand, gravel, and/or cobble, which may be moved by waves and wind. Beaches act as natural barriers between waves and upland features, such as dunes.

The wider and higher the beach, the more wave energy is dissipated before reaching the shoreline. Effects of Erosion and Accretion on Coastal Landforms.

shoreline evolution or re-alignment, sea-level rise and catastrophic geohazards in the coastal zone. Human-induced causes include beach sand extraction, the effects of sand-trapping structures and the reclamation of shorefront land, and the construction of seawalls.

Each of these causes of erosion is briefly reviewed for Pacific island shorelines. Napakiak City Council Member Walter Nelson shows where year by year, more of Napakiak’s land has been washed away by the Kuskokwim River.

The river eroded 82 feet of land between and December 3, Chapter 9 Beach Erosion and Loss 3 sustain the environment. After all, sand is the lifeblood of beaches. However, migrating upward and landward through space and time does create a huge problem for buildings and roads built too close to the shoreline.
