Check out the new issue of Shore & Beach (the Journal of the American Shore & Beach Preservation Association) for a very interesting article by Scott Douglass, myself, Caren Dixon, and Beau Buhring focused on proactive coastal engineering strategies for combatting oil spills on sandy beaches. Click on the image at right for a link to the abstract hosted by the ASBPA web site, or just click {here}. This volume of Shore & Beach has some other very good articles centered around the theme of “learning from disasters.” Here is an (almost) complete citation for our latest article:

  • Douglass, S. L.,Webb, B. M., Dixon, C. R., Buhring, T. 2011. Beach profile and island cross-section manipulations in response to an offshore oil spill. Journal of the American Shore & Beach Preservation Association, 79(4).
