This is the start of an article on Coastal Erosion Prevention and I would like to talk to others who have a similar interest, and may just have new knowledge in this field. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Crowsgorve (talkcontribs) 05:05, June 12, 2005‎


Original article was really bad, containing many inaccuracies, poorly researched and explained examples, etc.. Tides are definitely NOT the main cause of coastal erosion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dborignal (talkcontribs) 14:14, December 19, 2005

Definately needs some work- perhaps include some of the causes and cross-reference to costal defenses and methods of avoiding sinking into the sea, like Managed Retreat... — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 17:43, February 6, 2006‎

I agree,and I researched and came up with another better website (whose name shall remain undisclosed)and found out everything I needed to know. I will not be returning to wikepedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 13:21, January 16, 2012‎

River-Stream Sediment Question[edit]

Can anyone contribute something about the river and stream sediment factor. In California, I've heard for years that flood control and dam projects keep sediment from flowing into bays and oceans thus robbing beaches of a good source of sand. This seems to be evidenced by the fact that many dams are finally back filling with tons of silt and are no longer effective. I'm not an expert in this area so I defer to soil scientists, hydrologists and other hard science people. Me just humble shrink and surfer boy. Kit Hill
