The Texas A&M Superfund Research Center (Superfund Center) comprehensively evaluates the complexities of hazardous chemical exposures, potentially adverse health impacts, and potential hazards of exposures to complex mixtures through a series of multi-disciplinary projects derived from a case study utilizing Galveston Bay.

Climate change increased coastal populations, and shifts in domestic economic activity markedly increase the risks of catastrophic chemical contamination events resulting from weather-related or human-caused emergencies, increasing the risk of potential adverse health impacts.
