This interactive map depicts recent Texas Gulf shoreline change measured between 2010 and 2012 as well as storm susceptibility determined at 50-m intervals along the entire Texas Gulf shoreline. Airborne lidar surveys and shoreline movement analyses were conducted by the Bureau of Economic Geology. Storm susceptibility classification was developed by the Harte Research Institute, Texas A&M Corpus Christi. Data used to construct this site are summarized in "Paine, J. G., Caudle, Tiffany, and Andrews, John, 2013, Shoreline, beach, and dune morphodynamics, Texas Gulf coast: Bureau of Economic Geology, The University of Texas at Austin, Final Report prepared for General Land Office under contract no. 09-242-000-3789, 64 p."
