USGS - science for a changing world

St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center

Research Programs have a primary focus of investigating processes related to coastal and marine environments and societal implications related to natural hazards, resource sustainability, and environmental change.

The goal: to identify ways to streamline and improve procedures for transforming raw lidar data into useful data products. Honoring the career of USGS scientist Asbury Sallenger Understanding past coastal change in the northern Gulf of Mexico provides insight into modern and future trends. Integrating wetlands into coastal-change hazard assessments for a more comprehensive look at coastal ecosystem vulnerabilities. A new online tool that interactively serves up past, present and future coastal hazards can help communities improve their resilience
