Abstract:
Hurricane Rita made landfall on September 24, 2005 near the TX-LA border. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), NASA, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the University of New Orleans, Louisiana State University and the Texas Bureau of Economic Geology are cooperating in a research project investigating coastal change that is expected as a result of Hurricane Rita. Aerial video, still photography, and laser altimetry surveys of post-storm beach conditions will be collected for comparison with earlier data as soon as weather allows. The comparisons will show the nature, magnitude, and spatial variability of coastal changes such as beach erosion, overwash deposition, and island breaching. These data will also be used to further refine predictive models of coastal impacts from severe storms. The data will be made available to local, state, and federal agencies for purposes of disaster recovery and erosion mitigation. [Summary provided by the USGS.]
