Description:

This project provides an opportunity for students to research the changing shorelines of Texas. It engages high school students who live along the coast in the study of their natural environment including dune and beach dynamics on the Texas coast. Scientists from the University of Texas at Austin provide the tools and training needed for scientific investigation. Students and teachers learn how to measure the topography, map the vegetation line and shoreline, and observe weather and wave conditions. The lesson plans are: Beach Profile Analysis; Sand Analysis; Introduction to Waves; Waves and Forces; and Understanding the Littoral Current.
