A modern prevalence of erosion on barrier coastlines, recession resulting from net losses of sediment offshore, alongshore or landward has been demonstrated. This is the outcome partly of rising sea-level and partly of diminishing sediment supply, often the consequence of man's impacts on coastal environments. Examples are given of changes that have resulted from the cutting of artificial entrances through barriers or the building of barrages across tidal inlets to exclude marine penetration.
