See an example of MLA citation in the following:
Barber, Don. "Beach Nourishment Info." Bryn Mawr College. Bryn Mawr College. Web. 01 Nov. 2009.
This source is a researched proposal by Mawr College. The purpose of the study is to identify logistical solutions to problems associated with beach erosion. Mawr College has a team of scientists and students who argue for less pumping of sand onto barrier islands. This source will be used to provide persuasive support, facts and figures, and other information to support the claim that beach nourishment is the most effective sollution.
"Findings." Www.surfrider.org. Surfrider Foundation. Web. 1 Nov. 2009.
The surfrider foundation is a nonprofit organization formed to preserve and protect the coastal region of North Carolina. This organization has been awarded several grants from state and local governments to study the effects of proposed beach sand replacement. This source also offers several models of what the region will look like if beach sand is continually pumped in from offshore reefs and sand bars. I plan to use this source to help develop ethos on the subject of nourishment of beaches as opposed to other forms of erosion control.
Killough III, Willard, ed. "Beach Nourishment Project Reduced." Island Gazette [Carolina Beach] 2 Sept.
This is a local report on the damages of beach nourishment on local economies and environments. The report offers several key players in the battle over whether or not to save existing structures that are threatened by coastal erosion. In addition, several interviews are conducted with local officials and residents over proposed zoning. This source will help build ethos and spotlight the authorities and experts in this field. Their opinion will be presented to counter the opposition.
The Island Gazette, 2 Sept. 2009. Web. 1 Nov. 2009. <http://www.islandgazette.net/content/index.
"NEST - Sea Turtle Information." N.E.S.T. Homepage. Web. 1 Nov. 2009.
The Island Gazette has taken a clear stand on the subject of beach nourishment. This is an excellent source for the pros and cons of the issue as well as information relating to sea turtle nesting grounds will be utilized. Though not an authority on beach renourishment, this source will be utilized to offer some counter arguments related to the topic. I will then refute these claims using other source material.
