Abstract : Detailed beach slope and sediment studies have led to the conclusion that the gravel beaches and natural sand beaches of the Norwalk Westport area are in a state of equilibrium with existing wave conditions and sediment supply. In contrast to this, beaches restored by the direct placement of fill disturb the equilibrium conditions and lose almost all traces of their restoration within two or three years. (Author)
