From the Preface: The purpose of this publication is to describe, in non-technical terms, how the forces of the sea operate and the measures we can take to combat them. It is no secret that man himself contributed to the scope of destruction wrought by the Atlantic Storm by failing to preserve the protective features provided by nature and by neglecting structural precautions which would have greatly reduced damage. We cannot undo the past, but with proper foresight, enlightened awareness of hazards, and coordinated effort we can make our coasts much safer in the future.
