The Beach Book Excerpt :

Waves and tides, wind and storms, sea-level rise and shore erosion: these are the forces that shape our beaches, and beach lovers of all stripes can benefit from learning more about how these coastal processes work. With animation and clarity, The Beach Book tells sunbathers why beaches widen and narrow, and helps boaters and anglers understand why tidal inlets migrate. It gives home buyers insight into erosion rates and provides natural-resource managers and interested citizens with rich information on beach nourishment and coastal-zone development. And for all of us concerned about the long-term health of our beaches, it outlines the latest scientific information on sea-level rise and introduces ways to combat not only the erosion of beaches but also the decline of other coastal habitats. The more we learn about coastline formation and maintenance, Carl Hobbs argues, the better we can appreciate and cultivate our shores. Informed by the latest research and infused with a passion for its subject, The Beach Book provides a wide-ranging introduction to the shore, and all of us who love the beach and its associated environments will find it timely and useful.

Free the Beaches Excerpt :

The story of our separate and unequal America in the making, and one man's fight against it During the long, hot summers of the late 1960s and 1970s, one man began a campaign to open some of America's most exclusive beaches to minorities and the urban poor. That man was anti-poverty activist and one‑time presidential candidate Ned Coll of Connecticut, a state that permitted public access to a mere seven miles of its 253‑mile shoreline. Nearly all of the state's coast was held privately, for the most part by white, wealthy residents. This book is the first to tell the story of the controversial protester who gathered a band of determined African American mothers and children and challenged the racist, exclusionary tactics of homeowners in a state synonymous with liberalism. Coll's legacy of remarkable successes--and failures--illuminates how our nation's fragile coasts have not only become more exclusive in subsequent decades but also have suffered greater environmental destruction and erosion as a result of that private ownership.

Solid Waste Pollution on Texas Beaches Appendices Excerpt :

"Project MMS-Beach was designed to test the effectiveness of MARPOL Annex V in reducing the quantity of man-made debris littering Gulf of Mexico barrier island gulf beaches, specifically those in Texas. Annex V of the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships, 1973 (MARPOL) became international law on 31 December 1988. The Annex prohibits the discharge of plastics into the ocean and limits the discharge of other solid waste pollutants within varying distances from the U.S. coastline. The U.S. Minerals Management Service (MMS) needs to know if users of the Gulf of Mexico are observing Annex V. If so, then this should manifest itself in a reduction in the quantity of certain types of litter found on Gulf beaches. These materials include those readily identifiable with various operations of interest to MMS, for example, items from the off shore oil and gas exploration and production industry. The objective of this study was to compare results of beach-debris surveys done two years after, with those done two years prior to Annex V entering into force. The methods of surveying the beach had been devised by the author and were to be repeated in the post-MARPOL Annex V period. The investigator started looking at litter on Mustang Island (Texas) gulf beach (Figure 1.1) in 1978 when a survey was initiated to monitor the bird population with the advent of beachfront development. At first the references to litter and debris were anecdotal, in the form of notes and sporadic measurements. In 1983 an attempt was made to estimate the quantities of both man-made and natural debris using some 40 categories of debris types. Estimates were based on the investigator's knowledge of the common items after five years and over 500 observations to that date. An index system was devised based on a 0 to 5 scale of magnitude. This method is still employed on the survey (now with 2,100 observations) and is useful in gauging the seasonality of materials washing up on th
