Texas Students Coastal Monitoring Program

Summary

Bureau of Economic Geology, The University of Texas at Austin will teach students how to monitor selected beaches over a period of one year. Students will measure shore-normal beach and dune topographic profiles and make observations on weather conditions, sea state, longshore current, and dune vegetation at one to three sites during three field trips spaced throughout the academic year. The data collected by the students will be analyzed by scientists at the BEG and the students themselves, will compare their data to data collected by students in previous years.
