Construction of Harbour Works has cut off natural sediment supplies, while uplift by earthquake has provided a temporary source of sediment from offshore. Exhaustion of the offshore sediment supply, together with increased storminess, has reestablished erosion on the exposed southern portion of the Spit. Further north, at Fannin Road, the changes in coastline position have been negligible since 1916.
