Geological Survey studies the geologic processes at work in the Great Lakes region because they have direct bearing on the use, management, development, and preservation of the shoreline. It is important to understand how these processes shape our daily lives. About 15 percent of the United States' and 50 percent of Canada's population live along or near the 9,kilometer-long coastline of Author: David W. Folger, Steve Colman, Peter W. Barnes. The Southern Lake Michigan Coastal Erosion Study was initiated in in response to shoreline damage related to the high lake levels of The purpose of the study is to gain better understanding of the processes that cause erosion and flooding of Author: Steven M. Colman, Peter W. Barnes. Beach Nourishme Nt oNly large volume of sand added from outside source to an eroding beach.

The first of three technical reports, a June Technical Report on the Geologic Effects on Behavior of Beach Fill and Shoreline Stability for Southeast Lake Michigan (" Report"), however, expressed some uncertainty as to the impact of the beach nourishment program at St. Joseph. High lake levels allow waves to pound the beach farther inland, leading to greater amounts of erosion father up the beach front. The chart below shows that lake levels have fluctuated markedly over the past years, on the order of meters. At each high-water mark, extensive erosion is noted somewhere along the shoreline.

  Shoreline Movements: Reports 1 and 2 (Everts et al. , Anders et al. ). These reports and accompanying historical shoreline maps were the product of a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers/NOAA cooperative study of shoreline changes covering the Atlantic shoreline from Virginia to South Carolina.

The estuary drains the Pontchartrain Basin, an area of o square kilometers situated on the eastern side of the Mississippi River delta plain. In Louisiana, nearly one-third of the state population lives within the 14 parishes of the Pontchartrain Basin.   There were many curious beach lovers coming and going this particularly warm February day in Some of them dared walk beyond the beach onto the ice covered shoreline of Lake Michigan. When standing still on the frozen shoreline, you could hear the trickling of water moving under your feet, and crackling sounds too.
