Geological Framework Study for Folletts Island

Summary

Texas A&M University at Galveston will conduct a Geological Framework Study of Folletts Island and develop the data set that will be used to develop a process-based numerical model to predict future beach erosion and morphological changes on Folletts Island under various storm and hurricane conditions.  This study will include the collection of ultra high resolution swath bathymetry of the Gulf-side of Folletts Island from 10 to 30 feet of water and a series of high resolution beach profiles from the dry beach out to the 12 feet water depth to merge with the swath bathymetry.
