Coastal Erosion in Alaska

https://geology.com/usgs/alaska-coastal-erosion/ is a good website that shows wave erosion along the Beauford Sea, it includes a video and pictures.  I have friends from Shishmaraf who can’t stay there because there is no place to stay because they can’t build more houses because the village has to move due to erosion.  I remember my great Aunt telling me the village of Shaktoolik was relocated a long time ago because of erosion.  https://www.cakex.org/case-studies/1588  This site also has info about relocating other villages due to erosion.
