Graining

“As beaches disappear, countries are turning to increasingly expensive sand replenishment programmes which dump thousands of tonnes of dredged sand on existing, eroded beaches. But these artificial beaches usually erode at least twice as fast as natural beaches. … Eventually and inevitably beach replenishment will stop either as sand or money runs out.” (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2014/dec/15/worlds-beaches-being-washed-away-coastal-development)

The time-frame for beach erosion can be reliably measured using an egg-timer.
