Dr. Gibeaut is the Endowed Chair for Coastal and Marine Geospatial Sciences at the Harte Research Institute for Gulf of Mexico Studies, Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. He is a coastal geologist who uses topographic lidar, remote sensing, GIS, and field surveys to measure and understand coastal change. He has studied shorelines in a variety of locations including Rhode Island, Florida, Texas, Alaska, Honduras, Venezuela, Brazil and Saudi Arabia. Dr. Gibeaut often provides scientific input and advice to those developing and applying coastal management rules and policies. He is also developing virtual computer models of coastal environments for K-12 education. Currently, his main research focus is modeling the effects of sea-level rise and storms on barrier-island environments and projecting future change.
