ABSTRACT

El Nino Storms Erode Beaches on Monterey Bay, California   [open pdf - 1MB]

"As recently as 1998, storms generated by El Niños severely eroded beaches along Monterey Bay, California. To better understand the effects of such storms, United States Geological Survey (USGS) scientists, in cooperation with the California Department of Parks and Recreation, have been actively monitoring changes in the foreshore since the mid-1980's. The results of this study will help protect coastal residents, property, and environments and are being used by the State of California in guiding the management of public beaches."
