The sediment budget is of great concern to coastal plan­ ners, particularly along the eastern seaboard of the United States, who are in many instances compelled to repeatedly undertake expensive artificial beach nourishment operations when the natural sand supply fails to keep pace with erosion. 13 Aerial view of Atlantic Beach, New York, in 2010 showing how groins perturb patterns of sand deposition on the beach. The four groins in this photo are the dark, linear features perpendicular to the shoreline about 70 m long, constructed by piling large boulders.

In addition to applied fertilizers, the combustion of fossil fuels produces nitrogen emissions into the atmosphere, some of which returns to the 22 Geology in Environmental Management surface. Phosphorus has been an important ingredient in household detergents, but many jurisdictions have now mandated reduction in its concentration or elimination from cleaning products. Municipal wastewater effluents ­contribute both N and P, as do animal manures accumulating in large feedlots. , 1999). The sources of N and P (as well as other pollutants) to aquatic systems can be point or nonpoint.

Wastes may include relatively pure substances, contaminated components from decommissioned facilities, or protective clothing and tools that were in contact with nuclear materials (ANDRA, 2012). The long‐term fate of spent nuclear fuel and high‐level radioactive waste in the United States remains unresolved, the subject of both scientific research and political contro­ versy. Yucca Mountain, Nevada, was chosen by the US Congress in 1987 as the single repository in the country for all such waste, after a decade of site evaluation.
