UCSB Beach Chronologic Sequence April 1972 - December 2016

UCSB Beach, March 1980. Note how vegetated, inactive zone of the beach is narrower than in the previous year, but it and vegetation at the base of the cliff still protect cliff from direct attack by storm waves. Black masses on beach are clumps of kelp from recent storm. ©AGS1980.
