LaMarque Houston (IMAGE) University of Texas at Austin Caption Zoomed-in SAR amplitude image over the city of La Marque and Texas City (Houston), very close to the Texas coast. The dark areas shown in this figure are mostly water. The super bright area at the bottom right part of the figure is an industrial area with lots of oil-production facilities. A storm surge can cause a large amount of economic loss when it hits this area.
