Post-Sandy, Long Island barrier systems appear surprisingly sound
Date:12/11/2013

level rise will also create more pressure on the barrier system, heightening problems onshore. With higher sea level, all of the onshore impacts of a storm like Sandy will go up, notes Goff.

"In the long-term, if sea level gets high enough, the barrier system has no choice but to retreat and move landwards," said Goff, exposing the shoreline to increased erosion. "But at least for the present, there's no evidence of that being imminent."

The mission was the sixth rapid response science mission funded by the Jackson School of Geosciences at The University of Texas at Austin. (The Institute for Geophysics is a research unit within the Jackson School.) The missions place geoscientists on the scenes of natural disasters as quickly as possible to measure the often vanishing traces of hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis and other disasters.

"The faster we get out into the field to measure Earth's response to naturally destructive events, the better we can relate data to the disasters," said Austin.
