Is your beach eroding?

Here’s a challenge for those of us who live near a beach (that’s almost 2 million people in Ireland!). Is your beach eroding? NUI Galway geographer Kevin Lynch has designed a fun beach activity to calculate whether or not your local beach is eroding.

You have to do this one twice (or more times) to see the change. If your local beach appears to be changing, why not keep an eye on it over the whole summer and see what happens when the weather changes with autumn and winter?
