When you take a beach towel with you, there are numerous choices to make. You can usually find standard cotton beach towels, or you could opt for a range of synthetic beach towels with a range of different colors and patterns. Most synthetic beach towels are constructed from a polyester that’s both extremely light and comfortable, which makes them an ideal choice for both summer and winter use on the beach and also for use in the pool. But if you wish to add some style and flare to your beach living, there are a number of different things you could do.
Beach Blankets There are many different beach blanket types on offer. Some of the more common beach blankets are simply large sheets of fabric, tied together with strings, which you position over the sand. Other blankets involve creating a sand castle with pebbles or stones, which you place next to you on your beach bed. It is important not to position too much of a blanket over the sand, as it will actually prevent the sand from collecting.
Waves and Surfaces As mentioned above, one of the most common types of beach blankets is made from woven cotton. However, what if you would like a more distinctive beach blanket? In this case, there is a choice of different beach blanket materials. A popular choice for wave actions is made from a combination of quartz sand and plastic powder filled sheets. The quartz sand acts as a source of resistance for the waves, which gently push the blanket back into position each time the waves hit the beach. The plastic powder fills are designed to cushion the blanket from any knocks and bumps which may occur on the beach.
Beach Nourishment You may have noticed that the majority of beach blankets are woven from coarse, wiry fibers such as coarse cotton. While these fibers are ideal for providing extra body to the beach body, it is the loose particles within the fibers that provide the much needed beach nourishment. In most cases, loose particles are left to float on top of the water, as they tend to cling to the grains of sand and provide added resistance to the incoming waves. However, it is possible to use these same coarse fibers in conjunction with additional soft materials to create additional beach nourishment.
Seaweed is another natural resource that can be used as an added beach nourishment product. Seaweed is often placed in specially designed bags which are then dragged along the beach bed by specially designed shore treading equipments. These bags break apart the seaweed particles, which is then released into the surf. As the tide comes in and out, the waves run against the bags, which push them into the surf. As the tide recedes, the seaweed is pushed back into the bags. Once enough of the seaweed has been broken free from the beaches and into the surf, the wave activity will slow and eventually stop.
Sand can also be used as a beach nourishment product. The sand can be swept around the beach using specially designed devices. As the waves come in and out, the surfacing sand will be lifted by the waves and deposited where the wave has come in. When this happens, the area covered by the sand will be gradually replenished by the tides. As with the Seaweed bag method, once enough sand has been swept into the surf, it will once again start to rise due to the combined tide action and gravity.
Geologists believe that many major floods have occurred along the coastlines of continents over time. Some of these floods have been caused by continental drift, while others were caused by changes in the earths crust. Coastal erosion can be caused by any number of factors, including the rise of mountain ranges or the movement of tectonic plates. As the rising mountain or tectonic plate moves over the coastal area, the ocean bottom will steepen. This steepening will cause waves to be produced when the land shifts underneath it, creating an offshore break.
Ocean wave action is a direct result of the sun heating the earth’s surface temperature. Hot air rises, cooling the ground surface, while cold air sinks. As the earth heats up, the temperature of the ocean water becomes greater, which results in stronger waves, which cause beach erosion.
