[March Free Report] Coastal Erosion in the Gulf

Texas A&M Expert: Storms Worsening State's Beach Erosion Problem - Texas  A&M Today

In the Gulf of Mexico, there is a huge erosion problem that is caused by different sources of error. For one, there is a problem with the topography of the sand levels and also the amount of sand depleted each year. This is a problem because it caused coastal erosion in which this damages buildings and other infrastructure, primarily in the U.S. states of Texas & Florida.

To solve this problem, we have to develop a erosion wall or a system that prevents sand from depleting on the floor. This method can help develop erosion resistance and save billions of dollars for both federal and state governments.

    Hello Ashvik! This is your mentor James!
    First of all, my apologies for the late comment!

    I see that coastal erosion is emerging as a major problem in the southeast coastlines of the U.S. I assume that the erosion problem is amplified due to rising sea levels these days. A coastal wall can be a temporary solution indeed, but I think fighting global warming should be the key action to take in order to prevent further erosion.

    Thanks for the meaningful report! Looking forward to reading your next one!

    Hello Ashvik! Again, this is your mentor Yewon.

    This time you wrote about the problem of coastal erosion in the Gulf!

    Coastal erosion is a very important problem arising in an ocean environment. I wonder if climate change has a relation with the coastal erosion phenomenon. Also, I want to know if there is a more fundamental solution to this problem!

    Thank you for sharing!
