North Carolina's Outer Banks, like barrier islands worldwide, are in constant motion, responding to weather, waves, and rising sea level. Beaches erode, sometimes taking homes or sections of highway with them into the surf; sand dunes migrate with the wind; and storms open new inlets and dump sand in channels and sounds. The Nature of the Outer Banks describes these dynamic natural forces, explaining how they affect barrier islands in general and the Banks in particular, and guides visitors to sites where they can see these phenomena in action.
