Verse of The Day
“Kua karangatia nei hoki koutou, e oku teina, ki te tikanga herekore; kaua ia ta koutou tikanga herekore e waiho hei whakaoho i te kikokiko, engari me mahi koutou tetahi ki tetahi i runga i te aroha.” (Galatians 5:13)

This article, in the N.Z. Journal of Marine and Freshwater Research 12 (4): 429-56 December 1978, includes a large table showing the rates of coastal erosion and accretion around the New Zealand coast for 471 localities. The Ngunguru sandspit is one of those localities. From 1942 to 1959 the sandspit eroded 20 metres – a rate of 1.18 metres per year. From 1959 to 1963 there was no net change, giving an overall annual rate of erosion for the period 1942 to 1963 of .95 metres. You can read the whole article on the Royal Society of New Zealand website.
