Coastal geomorphic responses to sea level rise: Galveston Bay, Texas
MetadataShow full item record
The geomorphic effects of projected sea level rise on low-lying coastal landforms along southeast Galveston Bay, Texas, are described for a range of projected sea level rise rates (baseline, low, medium and high) at particular time periods (2025 and 2075). The objective is to determine the coastal changes in response to various assumed sea level increases by these particular dates. Two categories of physical response are addressed: shoreline changes representing landward displacement of the land/water interface and changes in storm surge levels and inland inundation as a result of the projected rates of sea level rise
