Endowed Chair in Geospatial Sciences

As endowed chair in Geospatial Sciences, Gibeaut seeks a better understanding of the dynamic links between geomorphology, sediments, hydrology, climate, and biology that create the carious environments of coastal zones.

Gibeaut, who has testified as an expert witness for the State of Texas in support of coastal property litigation, is an expert in coastal morphodynamics, remote sensing, modeling effects of sea-level rise on coastal geoenvironments, and coastal oil spill damage and clean-up assessment.
