ASBPA’s Science & Technology Committee has completed the 2021 update of the National Beach Nourishment Database. The database provides national-scale statistics on U.S. communities beach nourishment efforts over the last century (Elko et al. 2021). The database has been compiled over the last two decades and is updated annually by ASBPA membership. We have a new landing page on our website for the database! Check it out and share with your networks. Information is summarized at the national, state, and local level including the community name, each nourishment event, dates, volume, cost, and length. The database is only as accurate as the information that is provided to us. Please share your latest renourishment statistics or historical data with us by emailing our Science Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
