From the Introduction: It is the purpose of this paper; first to outline the criteria pertinent to the design of artificially nourished beaches and explain how each is derived and used; second, to present a brief history of five areas where the four types of artificial nourishment have been tried; namely, the offshore dumping method, the stockpiling method, the continuous supply method, and the direct placement method; and third, to present a tabular record of a great number of artificially nourished and constructed beaches, including factors relating to their placement and economic life.
