Flood Risk Reduction Program    

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.

The Water – Human Nexus Program    

This program involves understanding the interaction between urban development, anthropogenic impacts, and water along the Texas coast. Multiple projects take place under this program, including Status and Trends Monitoring. The Status and Trends monitoring program, funded by the Galveston Bay Estuary Program, collects data and analyzes water quality indicators from multiple sources. All of the projects within this program focus on answering questions about the human – water nexus and understanding how these findings can influence management and policy within the region.
