ISSUES, EFFECTS, AND WHERE IT OCCURS
THE EFFECTS ON WILDLIFE, EFFECTS ON LEAGUE CITY, AND PEOPLE EFFECTED BY THIS
When the beach erodes, it can cause loss of animals habitats, so animals go elsewhere. Coastal erosion does not effect League City directly, but some people may move from Galveston to League City beacuse of the beach erosion. Many people live on the beach and when beach erosion occurs, it can cause the house to submerge into the ocean or can cause a landslide.
THE CAUSES, THE SOLUTONS, AND NEW SOLUTIONS FOR BEACH EROSION
Beach erosion is caused by waves caused by storms, heavy fast winds, boats rubbing againt the land, or fastmoving motor crafts. To solve this large and threatning problem, people replenish and manage the sand. People also build a seawall to prevent the water from damaging the land. One solution we came up with is that people can slow down their motor craft near shore to slow beach erosion.
Beach erosion is caused by constant waves and a higher sea level.
BEACH HOUSE EROSION
The water washes the sand away along with the moving water as it hits the land.
HOUSE WITH BEACH EROSION
The oceans water hits the land that is near a home, so the water constantly hits the land until it moves it piece by piece.
FALLEN BEACH HOUSE
This beach house shifted when the land beneath it was gone. This shows how erosion can shift houses.
CALIFORNIA BEACH EROSION
This is a city on the beach. You can see that the land that is near the water is uneven because of coastal erosion.
