Seabrook’s Coastal Advisor Leads tour of North Beach

0_002Dr. Tim Kana lead a group of around 40 Seabrookers on a tour of North Beach on Tuesday. Displaying visuals of the first to last cuts of Captain Sams Inlet, Dr. Kana related the history of the Kiawah and Seabrook Island coastline from the development of our island in the 1970’s to the present. He explained how and why the coastline is constantly changing with the continual southern migration of the inlet and its effect on the erosion of land on the north end of the island. As long as we are able to make a new cut, Seabrook will continue to gain or ecrete sand on our beach. We are among the few beaches in the southeast where this is taking place. Thanks to Kana’s expert guidance throughout the years Seabrook has been able to sustain a viable beach for residents and visitors alike.
