  • Discussion Point: Accretion

    Accretion (Coastal Management), is the process of coastal sediments returning to the visible portion of a beach or foreshore following a submersion event. A sustainable beach or foreshore often goes through a cycle of submersion during rough weather then accretion during calmer periods. If a coastline is not in a healthy sustainable condition, then erosion can be more serious and accretion does not fully restore the original volume of the visible beach or foreshore leading to permanent beach or foreshore loss.
