Environmental factors controlling oyster shell deposits, Texas Coast
(Bureau of Economic Geology, University of Texas at Austin, 1968)
In recent years the demand for cement has increased tremendously along the Gulf Coast. Oyster shell is the only significant source of the lime needed for the cement for a distance of over 100 miles, and as such is being ...
Relation of passes on physical exchange and salinity in estuaries.
(University of Texas at Austin, Department of Civil Engineers, 1969)
This study determined whether exchange of waters between bays can be increased by dredging new passes or enlarging existing passes through barrier islands.
Oyster research in Texas
(University of Georgia, 1968)
A general discussion of the Texas oyster situation is presented and includes summary description of oystering areas and potential, industry problems (fluctuation of harvest, pollution, shell dredging and diseases), and ...
Review of reports on Houston Ship Channel, Texas. (Greens Bayou)
(U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston District, 1964)
This investigation comprises a study of survey scope to detmine the advisability of improving the lower portions of Greens Bayou for navigation. Detailed field surveys and office studies were made to determine the most ...
Canalization and spoiling in Gulf Coast and South Atlantic estuaries
(Thomas J. Moran's Sons, 1968)
Channels and spoil banks are now a part of the estuarine environment. Several methods of construction are used that permit varying degrees of control over resulting spoil. Mechanical excavation with bucket dredges or ...
Shell dredging. A factor in sedimentation in Galveston Bay.
(University of Texas at Austin, Center for Research in Water Resources, Hydraulic Engineering Laboratory, 1967)
Detailed field studies were undertaken to determine the movement of sediments resuspended by dredging operations in a localized area of Galveston Bay, Texas. The extent and manner in which sediment movement occurred and ...
Bottom fauna study--distribution and relative abundance of Rangia cuneata.
Ninety-three species of mollusks were collected and identified in the first phase of an ecological study of Galveston estuary. A portion of the data relating to one of these species (R.cuneata) is presented as an example ...
Productivity measurements in Texas turtle sea grass and the effects of dredging an intercoastal channel.

Effects of engineering projects.
Studies were initiated to determine how the estuarine biota is affected by environment modifications resulting from channelization, hydraulic spoiling, bulkheading, and filling. This report discusses the studies and some results.
