Stolen by the Sea
How Maryland's infamous Ocean City is being eroded away
A little about what's going on:
Currently, options ranging from 'beach nourishment,' the transport of sand from one area to the victim-location, and the placement of jetties are being used to assist in our fight to stop coastal erosion in Ocean City.
However, there are more efficient means of fixing this issue. For example, planting vegetation on the edges of the coastal lines can produce a more stable, rooted system on the coasts, making it more difficult to drag the sand into the ocean and decrease the territory around it. This method also makes it difficult for storms to blow sand around and ruin the equipment put out to stop the erosion.
An example where mounds of sand were placed in attempt to assist with stopping the coastal erosion.
