Sediments are constantly deposited and removed from the beach through wave action, wave currents, tidal currents or winds. When the removal exceeds that of the supply, erosion occurs. It is a natural process that can be enhanced by human activities or slowed down through intervention. It is a major problem worldwide, affecting millions of people and causing massive property loss. The Philippines’ coastline is no exception.
