Item description for Saving America's Beaches: The Causes of and Solutions to Beach Erosion (Advanced Series on Ocean Engineering) by Scott L. Douglass...

This book tells you where beach sand comes from, how waves are formed and how they break and move sand down the coast, how "works of man" have blocked this movement and caused beach erosion, and what can be done to save the beaches for future generations of Americans. A three-part prescription for healthy beaches is proposed: "backing off", "bypassing sand", and "beach nourishment". So if you love waves and beaches, and care about the future of your favorite beach spot, then read this book while you enjoy the beach.

Reviews - What do customers think about Saving America's Beaches: The Causes of and Solutions to Beach Erosion (Advanced Series on Ocean Engineering)?

Great read for understanding beach processes  May 15, 2007
If you want to help save America's beaches, you must read this book!
 
Great beach book!  Apr 14, 2004
I ordered a copy of this book iniitially because I was interested in buying beach property along the Alabama coast and I knew the author had done some extensive work in studying the beach erosion problems down there. I was expecting a somewhat technical manual that would be hard to understand. I was delighted with the easy to read, very interesting way in which Dr. Douglass highlights the causes and solutions to beach erosion. Honestly, I would pick this book up if you are in the slightest bit interested in learning more about America's beaches. Great pictures too. I read it in one sitting. My highest recommendation!
