"Beach Management in Florida, an Investigative Report"
Orrin Pilkey - The Independent, North Carolina
"We're Killing Our Beaches"
Jim Cresson - The Cape Gazette, Delaware
"Stones, shells, sharp drop-off are hazards of a new beach"
Natural Resources Protective Association
"Problems Associated with 1994 Beach Replenishment Project in Brooklyn, New York"
