Flood Risk Reduction

Coastal floods are the most costly, disruptive, and life-threatening hazard worldwide. The negative impacts of these storm events are increasing in the United States and abroad. Through its various research projects, The Center for Texas Beaches and Shores is developing risk reduction strategies based on resistance, acceptance, avoidance, and awareness approaches to management. We encourage you to view these projects to better understand the Center. We also encourage you to visit our ATLAS to learn more about the flood risk taking place in your area.
