The area in question in this case comprised beach and coastal dunes to the east of Pogorzelica, 361 km along the Polish coast as measured from the Gulf of Gdańsk. Measurements made on the beach showed how it is subject to seasonal changes. While upper and lower parts present evidence of the accumulation of material, the middle is characterised by a loss of material. Deposits preserve traces of five storm surges during which the waterline reached to the base of the dunes. Analysis of dune deposits themselves also revealed variation as regards development trends. In the past there have been periods in which accumulation was dominant, during which new dune ridges were created and old ones rebuilt, as well as periods characterised by the prevalence of destructive processes. The occurrence of soil horizons attests to periods of dune stabilization. – (BJ)
