Coastal Louisiana and Texas are characterized by tremendous complexity and variability in their geography, topography, bathymetry, continental shelf, estuarine systems, and surface roughness. Hurricane Ike significantly impacted both coastal Texas and Louisiana producing a storm surge of more than 5.3m in eastern Texas and more than 2.2 m in eastern Louisiana (more than 500 km away from the storm landfall location).

This work is concerned with disturbance amplification in interconnected systems which contain a large number of elements. The main focus is on passive control of a chain of masses where a single point is subject to an external disturbance. This problem arises in the design of multi-storey buildings subjected to earthquakes, but applies in other situations such as bidirectional control of vehicle platoons. We investigate the scalability of this system, i.e., the ability to control a system behaviour independent of its size.
