Tropical Storm Bill Assessment of Potential Coastal-Change Impacts: NHC Advisory 2, 0900 AM UTC MON JUN 16 2015

Online link
Description This dataset defines storm-induced coastal erosion hazards for the Texas and Louisiana coastline. The analysis was based on a storm-impact scaling model that used observations of beach morphology combined with sophisticated hydrodynamic models to predict how the coast would respond to the direct landfall of Tropical Storm Bill in June 2015. Storm-induced water levels, due to both surge and waves, were compared to beach and dune elevations to determine the probabilities of the three types of coastal change: collision (dune erosion), overwash, and inundation. All hydrodynamic and morphologic variables are included in this dataset. [More]
