Human intervention in the shore line erosion in process in Hawaii is one of the tragedies of modern times. When shore lines are made hard, as in seawalls, sand disappears, near shore waves change and entering the water becomes more dangerous. None the less an island’s job is to erode, it’s just the natural course of things. If allowed to occur in a natural way (with out seawalls) sand forms and their is a gentle slop towards the waters edge. Sand is like a membrane between the earth and the ocean.
