floridaFlorida is largely fringed by long, narrow barrier islands. It is a coastline more influenced by waves than tides, making it conductive to the formation of sandy-beached barrier islands and spits.

On the Panhandle and northern peninsula, the quartz sand is fine-grained and white. Further down the peninsula, the sand is brown and composed of shells. Out on the Keys, crushed shells enter the equation. Unfortunately, many Florida beaches are no longer natural, since they have been “re-nourished” with sand dredged from offshore- a procedure necessitated by beach erosion due to human interference with sand-deposition processes. In wake of Florida’s recent run of hurricanes, the entire state has become on big beach re-nourishment project.

The site’s theme is focused on Florida’s beaches. However, any beach will do just fine.
