Each year along the Atlantic Coast about 30 to 40 winter storms generate waves large enough to erode the beaches and frontal dunes. Every hundred years or so one of these storms will be severe enough to have major impact on the barrier islands. It was such a storm in March 1962 that serves as the benchmark for many working in the field of coastal geology.
