Dziwna River Sandbar

Dziwnowska Sandbar. Is localised between regular land and the Wolin Island, divided by Dziwna channel [1]. Its' waterbreakers stop sand transportation along the coast. Old outlet of the Dziwna was in east direction [2], but after storm surges in 19th century a new one was builded itself. The east part of the sandbar is very narrow between sea and Kamieński Haff [3]. On it are localised two touristic towns/villages: Dziwnów [4] and Dziwnówek [5] near cliff coast. West part of sandbar localised on the Wolin Island is wider. There are localised two small villages Międzywodzie and ¦więtou¶ć. This part of sandbar has bigger and higher dunes. The east par is endangered by flooding and storms. Dunes are protected by heavy bands [6] and nourished (profiles. 4, 5). Only close to the east waterbreaker coast accumulation and growing of the new dunes are still existing [7]. (postcards: Kamera publish.).
