  title={Historical Shoreline Position Change for the Mainland Beach in Harrison County, Mississippi},
  author={Mark R. Byrnes and Matteson W. Hiland and Randolph A. McBride},
Historical shoreline position change (1851/52 to 1986) associated with the mainland beach in Harrison County, Mississippi, are controlled by engineering activities associated with beach replenishment and harbor constructions since 1951. Long-term trends illustrate net progradation since 1851/52 whereas short-term trends (1951 to 1986) show net retreat at a rate of 0.5 m/yr. Although harbor entrances that act as littoral barriers segregate the beach into geomorphic zones, temporal variability in…
