This paper focuses on the investigation of sediment budget in several portions of a coastal park, the Sandy Hook Unit of Gateway National Recreation Area, that is affected by external actions and it describes the subsequent utilization of the derived sediment budget calculations to drive a management response within the philosophical context of the National Park Service mission. Starting in 1997, detailed topographical surveys were begun to track sediment budget in the eroding Critical Zone, and subsequently at Gunnison Beach, a site of sediment accumulation. A new management philosophy of smaller scale restoration of sediment supply in the Critical Zone has emerged
