Will this storm make the beaches more productive?

Post by cammann »

Hi All, as I'm sitting here listening to the howling wind I was wondering whether the current storm (Brendan) is likely to result in the beaches more productive for a short while? I live a fair way from the beaches but as I've a day off tomorrow and the fields are all waterlogged I may well be tempted.

Depends on the position of the beaches - some will get scoured so maybe things will get uncovered ,others will have sand pushed onto them and put things deeper down . It's all about knowing your area ,winds and tides and their effect on a particular beach.For example where I am on the East coast this South Westerly wind will push sand onto the beach whereas a North Easterly will remove up to a metre on some tides

Wow - thats a huge difference. I'm in Cambridge so looking at Felixstowe or Hunstanton area beaches.
