Surfing the Monday


LONDON, 19 March, 2016 – The Atlantic seas could be getting rougher, with winter storms capable of causing dramatic changes to the beaches of Western Europe.

And new research shows that the pounding delivered to the shorelines of the UK and France in the winter of 2013-2014 was the most violent since 1948.

Gerd Masselink, professor of coastal geomorphology at Plymouth University School of Marine Science and Engineering, UK, and colleagues report in Geophysical Research Letters that they decided to switch focus from sea level rise resulting from global warming.

Instead, they concentrated on the energy delivered by the rising waves as they crashed onto the beaches, dunes, shingle beds and rocky coasts, and on the consequent erosion of sediment.

    Wow, that wall of water is scary as hell. I would never live near the ocean, NO way.

    On Facebook I saw a video of a caterpillar, the tomato worm kind, and it was HUGE! Crawling on a woman’s hand, it was like a sci/fi movie. The creature in the video was found in Alabama! That’s why I’ve ALWAYS stayed in Michigan. Best place to live. The winters keep the critters down.
