Beach processes along the southern end of Jekyll Island
were monitored from 199 through 2002. While accretion is apparent along the
south-east beach, erosion is predominant along the southern end of Jekyll Island.
The trees along the beach that continue to fall after their roots are exposed by the
eroding high tide evidence this. Observational evidence is also presented to show
that erosion along this beach segment is gradually slowing down as the tidal waves
are attenuated over the widening beach face.
