Shoreline changes on the intensively developed New Jersey shore are examined to provide a basis for management decisions for natural inlets and jetted inlets and for evaluating tradeoffs involved in constructing jetties at natural inlets. The variety of beach features is reduced by jetties, but the variety of aquatic habitat and potential human uses are increased due to the existence of a structure which would not otherwise exist on a sandy shoreline. -from Author
