    "Although shoreline erosion is a natural, ongoing phenomenon, certain man-related activities are known to modify natural coastal processes, thereby changing the characteristics and rates of erosion. At some point, governments and individuals must provide compensation for the cists they impose on others ... Administration of the National Flood Insurance Program are considering options for providing federally subsidized insurance to Great Lakes shore property owners in erosion hazard zones ... The feasibility of obtaining compensation for shore erosion is one element of a larger set of nonstructural alternatives for either reducing shore erosion damages or mitigating the financial hardships which can accompany erosion damages."--Vol.1, p. [1].
