CRMC  Map of Potter Cove Erosion

Coastal Resources Management Council has been studying erosion in Narraganset Bay. This map shows the erosion at Potter Cove beach in Jamestown, Rhode Island over a 76 year period.

 

Most of the erosion happens in violent storms; which way the wind blows (southeast in hurricanes, northeast in winter storms) determines the amount of erosion in a storm.
