National Assessment of Hurricane-Induced Coastal Erosion Hazards: Gulf of Mexico Update

Kara S. Doran, , Justin J. Birchler, Nathaniel G. Plant & Jacquelyn R. Overbeck
These data sets contain information on the probabilities of hurricane-induced erosion (collision, inundation and overwash) for each 1-km section of the Gulf of Mexico coast for category 1-5 hurricanes. The analysis is based on a storm-impact scaling model that uses observations of beach morphology combined with sophisticated hydrodynamic models to predict how the coast will respond to the direct landfall of category 1-5 hurricanes. Hurricane-induced water levels, due to both surge and waves, are compared...
