“Tidal inlets, either on the mainland or between barrier islands, can be altered by dredging, relocation, or artiﬁcial closure. Direct effects of
dredging tidal inlets are changes in current patterns, which may change the location and degree of erosion and deposition events, and
prevention of sand transfer across inlets. In either case, additional shoreline hardening is a common response.”
