Natural drainage of coastal mountains carries with it erodible sediments which are deposited downstream on coastal plains, and along the shoreline, nourishing local beaches. The beaches, in turn, are subject to the action of ocean waves which cause longshore transport and shape the coastline and beaches. Beach sediments are eventually lost to deeper offshore areas (Inman and Brush, 1973). This complex natural process is dynamic and any equilibrium is usually of a temporary nature even though time scales of change may be long.
