Coastal Spine (Ike Dike)

The video below introduces the Coastal Atlas, developed by Texas A&M University at Galveston, which allows users to see the extent of flood inundation and monetary loss that could be caused by future storms. It also shows how devastating major hurricanes have been to the Greater Houston Area and brings to life the potential damage of the next big storm. It also shows how a system such as the Coastal Spine and Ike Dike concept would mitigate storm surge.
