South Texas Coastal Classification Maps - Mansfield Channel to the Rio GrandeEntry ID: USGS_OFR_2006_1133
Abstract: The primary purpose of the USGS National Assessment of Coastal Change Project
is to provide accurate representations of pre-storm ground conditions for areas
that are designated high priority because they have dense populations or
valuable resources that are at risk from storm waves. A secondary purpose of
the project is to develop a geomorphic (land feature) coastal classification
that, with only ... minor modification, can be applied to most coastal regions in
the United States.
A Coastal Classification Map describing local geomorphic features is the first
step toward determining the hazard vulnerability of an area. The Coastal
Classification Maps of the National Assessment of Coastal Change Project
present ground conditions such as beach width, dune elevations, overwash
potential, and density of development. In order to complete a
hazard-vulnerability assessment, that information must be integrated with other
information, such as prior storm impacts and beach stability. The Coastal
Classification Maps provide much of the basic information for such an
assessment and represent a critical component of a storm-impact forecasting
