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 ...
Ecology of western Gulf estuaries.
A detailed analysis was conducted of data collected from the Galveston Bay system since 1963. Information in this report includes: description of the hydrological conditions, determination of the abundance and size of ...
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.
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 ...
The prediction problem for salinity intrusion
(Galveston Bay National Estuary Program, 1993)
Salinity prediction in an estuary such as Galveston Bay is deceptive: it appears simple, should be solved, and yet, is a continuing source of controversy. On the one hand, salinity is the quintessential estuarine parameter, ...
Sabine-Neches estuary: a study of the influence of freshwater inflows. Draft report.
(Texas Department of Water Resources, 1979)
The Texas Water Plan of 1968 tentatively allocated specific annual amounts of water to supplement freshwater inflow to Texas' bays and estauries. These amounts were recognized at the time as no more than preliminary estimates ...

Economic and environmental problems and needs assessment of southeast Texas. Final.
(Austin, Texas: Hennigson, Durham and Richardson, Incorporated; and Denton, Texas: Petra of Texas, Incorporated, 1981)
The U.S. Department of Interior, Bureau of Reclamation conducted a multiphased feasibility study for the Bon Wier Resevoir Project. This proposed reservoir site is located on the Sabine River in Newton County near Bon ...
The influence of freshwater inflows upon the major bays and estuaries of the Texas Gulf Coast.
The Texas Department of Water Resources was directed by Senate Bill 137, 64th Texas Legislature, to conduct comprehensive studies of the effects of freshwater inflow upon the bays and estuaries of Texas and to estimate the ...
Utilization of marsh and associated habitats along a salinity gradient in Galveston Bay
(U.S. Dept. of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Marine Fisheries Service, Southeast Fisheries Center, Galveston Laboratory, 1990)
The purpose of this study was to characterize marsh use by fishery species relative to salinity regime. Several hypthoseses were proposed. The central hypothesis was that marshes in the mid-range salinity regimes are more ...
