HOUSTON (1996) criticizes us for what he believes are two related shortcomings of our paper discussing the GENESIS shoreline change model (YOUNG et al., 1995). He believes that we are incorrect in asserting that the use of GENESIS for the Folly Beach replenishment project is inappropriate, and he suggests that we should have provided more "evidence" from other projects that actual design parameters generated by GENESIS are incorrect.
