Shoreline Change and Beach/Dune Morphodynamics Along the Gulf Coast

Summary

This University of Texas at Austin Bureau of Economic Geology project will provide data, maps and analyses that are needed to plan the future of the shoreline. State-of-the-art LIDAR technology and analysis methods will be used. Status of the beach/dune system will be determined through the measurement of volumes, dimensions, and morphology, and a storm susceptibility index will be developed.
