Fast Retreating Beaches in Texas - The Bad and Rad from Surfrider's State of the Beach 2002

Many Texas beaches are eroding at rates of 5 to 10 feet per year -- one of the highest coastal erosion rates in the country. Up to 600 feet of additional erosion is possible in the next 25 years (Source: May 2000 article in the Texas A&M Aggie Daily reports on the efforts of Texas A&M University at Galveston professor Jim Webb, who is working with Galveston County officials and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in a project to stop coastal erosion.)
