Know Your Mud, Sand and Water: A Practical Guide to Coastal Development.
Jurgensen, K. M.
Because of the problems that have arisen from unsound development of the coastal areas of North Carolina, this publication was written to explain the natural processes of these areas to the layman. This guide provides brief descriptive information on the geomorphology and ecology of sounds, beaches, barrier islands, inlets, dunes, maritime forests, and lagoon-estuary systems. The descriptions of these coastal areas focuses on the natural changes and balances involved in the physical effects of wind and wave. An underlying assumption is that man can live in balance with natural systems. The problem of managing regional resources using local governmental bodies is considered. (MR)
