Tidal Hydrodynamic and Salinity Models for Corpus Christi and Aransas Bays, Texas
(Frank D. Masch and Associates, 1972-09)
Mathematical simulation models for tidal hydrodynamics and salinity (TDS) have been developed for the combined Corpus Christi and Aransas-Copano Bay systems. These models have been calibrated and verified to the extent ...
Analog model of diffusion in bays and estuaries.
Modelling the diffusion of chemicals through bays and estuaries from local sources is of increasing importance. An electrical analog model is described that can incorporate the geometry of the system studied and yield ...
Reduction - alteration of living resources
(Galveston Bay National Estuary Program, 1990)
This article is about the reduction and alteration of living resources with an emphasis on habitat, salinity, and water quality and circulation.
The estuarine zone: uses and concerns.
(Texas A&M University, 1971)
An estuary is part of the coastal area known as a bay, tideflat, bayou, lagoon or marshland. The biological characteristics are summarized with the importance to certain species of fishes, marine animals, waterfowl, plants, ...
Preliminary review draft: a comprehensive report to the 63rd Texas legislature on the Coastal Resources Management Program
(Interagency Council on Natural Resources and the Environment, 1972)
Senate Current Resolution No. 38, 61st Legislature, directed the Interagency Council on Natural Resources and the Environment to conduct a comprehensive investigation and analysis of the State's coastal zone. This grew ...
Sedimentation in fluvial-deltaic wetlands and estuarine areas Texas Gulf coast. Literature Synthesis.
(University of Texas at Austin, Bureau of Economic Geology, 1990)
Deltaic and associated alluvial areas at the mouths of rivers that discharge into the bay-estuary-lagoon system along the Texas coast are the sites of extensive salt-, brackish-, and fresh-water marshes that are essential ...
Textural and geochemical relationships in benthic sediments in three bay-estuary-lagoon systems in Texas
(Offshore Technology Conference, 1985)
Analyses of hundreds of benthic sediment samples collected as part of an extensive inventory of Texas coastal submerged lands have provided data for textural and geochemical characterization of these stems of Galveston and ...
Estuaries of the United States: Vital statistics of a national resource base
(U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, 1990)
This report describes briefly the Nation's estuarine resource base. It updates information presented in a number of previous NOAA reports and atlases developed through its National Estuarine Inventory (NEI) program, ...
Legal assurances of adequate flows of fresh water into Texas Bays and estuaries to maintain proper salinity levels.
Water in coastal bays, lagoons, and estuaries is a mixture of sea water, rain, and inflows from streams, groundwater and surface runoff. Increased water utilization, storage, reuse and interbasin transfers expectedly will ...
Preliminary Investigation of Tracer Gas Reaeration Method for Shallow Bays
(Texas Water Resoruces Institute, 1987)
Accurate estimates of surface exchange rates for volatile pollutants in bays are needed to allow predictions of pollutant movement and retention time. The same types of estimates can be used to calculate reaeration rates. ...
