The overarching goal of USGS Gulf Coast science in the post-Katrina environment is to provide the scientific information, knowledge, and tools required to ensure that decisions about land resource use, management practices, and future development in the coastal zone and adjacent watersheds, are made that promote restoration, increase coastal resilience, and mitigate risks associated with both artificial and natural hazards.
