The Western Carolina University Program for the Study of Developed Shorelines (PSDS) beach nourishment database is the result of over 25 years of ongoing research and data collection. The information contained in this database represents, to the best of our knowledge, the most comprehensive compilation of beach nourishment history in the United States.
