One of the most interesting stops on our field trip was seeing how geomorphology is used to solve everyday problems. Jim Warren, who had accompanied us on our Park Point excusion took us to one of his previous clients homes to show us how he help avert a potential disaster. On this stop we learned not only how geomorphology helped the owner, but how waves erode along the shore, what types of protective measures are used to stop wave erosion, and the problems that waves can cause.
