Abstract

Application of the concept of intrinsic value to inanimate objects is examined by comparing characteristics of depositional landforms in undeveloped coastal areas with those of landforms subjected to human modification. Humans alter landforms either through direct manipulation or indirect means. Altered and unaltered landforms are often similar in outward appearance and have identical human uses, but internal structures and evolutionary processes differ. Essential characteristics of natural features can be maintained through alternative management techniques. -Author
