The objective of this work was to conduct a geographic analysis and priority ranking of possible NPS sources and loads to Galveston Bay. The study area was defined by GBNEP and includes the entire Galveston Bay drainage ...
Galveston Bay: test case of an estuary in crisis.
The Galveston Bay estuary's environmental crisis is reported. Long a major nursery area for shellfish and finfish, the bay's water quality has been severely degraded by rapid industrial and population growth. A 1914 ...

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. ...
Landsat assessment of estuarine water quality with specific reference to coastal land-use.
(Texas A&M University, 1978)
The highly productive and economically valuable estuaries of the United States are under environmental stress. The effects of human beings in most cases will inevitably increase turbidity, siltation and related pollution ...

(U.S. Dept. of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Marine Fisheries Service, 1975)
Seven Texas estuarine areas are described in terms of their dimensions: major vegetation types; geology and geological history; drainage basins and streams discharge records; hydrological, biological, and benthic properties; ...
Estuarine processes. Volume I - Uses, stresses, and adaptation to the estuary
(Academic Press, 1976)
...The Governing Board decided that the next Recent Advances would emphasize estuarine processes - an attempt to focus on dynamic interactions at several levels of organization. As it worked out, more than 70 papers were ...
What is an estuary: Physical Viewpoint
(American Association for the Advancement of Science, 1967)
The problem of defining an estuary and delineating the area of estuarine oceanography has concerned me since I first started to study these bodies of water fifteen years ago. It is difficult to develop a definition that ...
Bay and estuarine system management in the Texas Coastal Zone, Phase II: A conceptual report.
(University of Texas at Austin, Division of Natural Resources and the Environment., 1973)
Each coastal environmental unit is evaluated in terms of its natural capability to sustain human use that affects its physical, hydrological, geological, chemical, and biological properties, and is grouped in an appropriate ...
