Title:
Beach processes along the southern end of Jekyll Island, Georgia
Authors:
Maasha, Ntungwa
Abstract:
Beach processes along the southern end of Jekyll Island were monitored from 199 through 2002. While accretion is apparent along the south-east beach, erosion is predominant along the southern end of Jekyll Island. The trees along the beach that continue to fall after their roots are exposed by the eroding high tide evidence this. Observational evidence is also presented to show that erosion along this beach segment is gradually slowing down as the tidal waves are attenuated over the widening beach face.
