Verse of The Day
“Ka mea a Ihu ki a ia, Kia whakapaua tou ngakau, tou wairua, tou hinengaro, ki te aroha ki te Ariki, ki tou Atua. Ko te tuatahi tenei, ko te kupu nui. He rite ano te tuarua ki tenei, Kia aroha koe ki tou hoa tata, ano ko koe.” (Matthew 22:37-39)

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.
