Introduction: The following monitoring study was conducted to examine the change in shear resistance of sand (consistency) due to the disposal of material dredged from St. Lucie Inlet, Florida. An increase in shear resistance (harder consistency) of beach sand is of concern because it can inhibit digging by sea turtles which use the beaches for nesting (Ehrhart and Raymond, 1983).
