Short summary
Barrier islands change through time and space in response to natural and human forces. This paper shows that barrier island development and the beach–dune system can be influenced asymmetrically during island development by ancient and buried river valleys that cross the modern barrier island. Given the importance of the natural environment, coastal management projects should first seek to understand how the island developed in order to more effectively balance natural and human pressure.
