Where’s the Beach? A Study In Coastal Erosion and PreventionEarth and Environmental Sciences
- Ryan Bowman
"Create an observable test to measure the effectiveness of different types of coastal barriers. I will make a beach and design a sea wall and groins to see if they reduce the impact of the water along the “coastline.” I chose this project because I love the beach and we learned about erosion in class. The result was that groins did the best job on a lower slopes beach and no barrier and groins did the best for a highly slopes beach. It is important to see how beaches and buildings along the coast can be saved from the effects of the water."
