    Researchers from Deltares, Delft University of Technology and IHE, have found that the eroding of sand beaches is less dramatic than is generally assumed. There are more sandy beaches that grow worldwide, than ones that shrink. This is the outcome of the study by the researchers who analysed changes in 50,000 beaches over a 35-year […]

    Bulkheads and seawalls along the shores of Puget Sound help ease erosion and stabilize bluffs to protect waterfront properties, according to the University of Washington. But these walled structures also shrink beaches, reduce habitat for invertebrates and spawning fish and, indirectly, degrade conditions for iconic species like salmon and orcas. Many studies have shown this pattern […]
