Open-File Report O-08-15, OREGON BEACH AND SHORELINE MAPPING AND ANALYSIS PROGRAM: 2007-2008 BEACH MONITORING REPORT
Beaches are among the most dynamic and changeable of all landforms. Because of this, Oregon beaches can be dramatically affected when severe storms hit our coast. Over recent years, intense winter storms have caused major coastal erosion, encroaching on homes built atop dunes and coastal bluffs. In several cases the results have been the destruction of homes, roads and recreation areas.
