Texas’ weather extremes explained in new txH2O
The Texas Water Resources Institute recently published a new issue of txH2O, featuring insights into weather extremes in Texas. In the magazine, researchers and scientists explain Texas’ propensity for droughts as well as the Central Texas phenomenon of Flash Flood Alley.
The fall 2016 issue also profiles Rice University’s Dr. Philip Bedient, who has researched flooding for four decades and has led development of a storm surge protection plan for the Houston Ship Channel and Galveston Bay area. Other stories cover how fish populations have been affected by lake fluctuations, a Texas A&M collaboration with a flood-prone Houston neighborhood, Somerville Lake’s extreme flooding in recent years and more.
