Descripción
During the first half of 2006, important sandy nourishment was carried out in the barrier beach of Cancun ¿ Nizuc (Mexico). It was quickly decided and carried out just after hurricane Wilma swept the barrier. This decision interrupted a long time of discussions about which was the better solution for recovering the serious erosion of the barrier beach. In fact, this erosion became substantial, and even alarming, when hurricane Gilbert hit the Yucatan in 1988. Anyway, the development of the barrier, fast and intensive, became in the seventies, and there are motives to think that the changes in the barrier produced by this development may have induced a farther and more continuous erosive process. This paper discusses the role of the different natural agents on the coastal erosion in this barrier, trying to discern the relative importance of common maritime weather versus hurricanes; and the role of the different anthropogenic agents of development in both the generation of new erosive coastal processes (strictly anthropogenic) and the strengthening of the previous and natural processes (partially anthropogenic).
