identifies time periods during which the coast demonstrated erosion, progradation, as well as times of dynamic stability.

Barrier island and salt marsh lagoon sediments were collected from coastal Georgia to evaluate the ability of statistical parameters to discriminate among sedimentary environments with the goal of applying these techniques to the rock record.

Kiawah Island, South Carolina was evaluated prior to resort development for ecological features and coastal processes of the island to create a development model for barrier islands. Areas of the island designated as ecologically sensitive and areas designated as having a high risk of erosion were excluded from the development plan.
