This figure appears in chapter 5 of the Impacts, Risks, and Adaptation in the United States: The Fourth National Climate Assessment, Volume II report.

The figure shows the development-related changes surrounding Houston, Texas, from 1996 to 2010, as mapped by NOAA’s Coastal Change and Analysis Program (C-CAP). Areas of change between 1996 and 2010 are shown in black.d992cf24-8abc-4972-8edb-2dde12fa68a2 These changes can have numerous impacts on the environment and populations, ranging from increased urban heat island effects and storm water runoff (the latter of which can increase flooding and produce water quality impacts), to decreases in natural cover.
