Abstract
    This paper expands and revises the original Gulf of Mexico beach nourishment database of Dixon and Pilkey (1989) by summarizing the beach nourishment experience up to 1996. Information is presented concerning 158 nourishment episodes along 60 beaches totaling over 78,000,000 cubic yards of emplaced sand from Corpus Christi, Texas to Marco Island, Florida. In recent years, the number, volume and average length of beach nourishments per year has increased.
