In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, scientists from the University of Texas at Austin's Institute for Geophysics, with colleagues from Adelphi University, Stony Brook University and other institutions, surveyed the offshore and nearshore sediments around Long Island to assess the health of the region's barrier sediments and their long-term ability to protect New York and Long Island from the impacts of future storms. Funding was provided by the Jackson School of Geosciences at the University of Texas at Austin, which has a strategic focus on sending geoscientists to the scenes of natural disasters to help society mitigage the impacts of major events like hurricanes, tsunamis and earthquakes.
