2016 Coastal Holiday Update from Jim Blackburn

Jim Blackburn, co-director of the SSPEED Center at Rice University has sent our his annual Coastal Holiday Update. Item 2 is particularly relevant to Galveston Island in that a storm disaster at Houston will flush out by our island. A Galveston Ring Levee could conceivably provide protection from the aftermath of such an event as well as during a storm. Item 6 talks about continuing residual pollution affecting fish within the bay.
