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 ...
Evaluation of marsh creation and restoration projects and their potential for large-scale application, Galveston-Trinity Bay system
(Bureau of Economic Geology, University of Texas at Austin: Texas: General Land Office, Coastal Division, 1998)
This project used detailed field surveys to inventory and evaluate wetland restoration, enhancement, and creation projects in terms of their original design criteria, objectives, physical characteristics, hydrology, ...
Submerged lands of Texas, Galveston - Houston area: sediments, geochemistry, benthic macroinvertebrates, and associated wetlands
(University of Texas at Austin, Bureau of Economic Geology, 1985)
Surface sediment textures, sediment geochemistry, and benthic fauna of the State-owned submerged lands were mapped and described using bottom samples collected at 1-mi (1.6-km) intervals from bays, estuaries, and lagoons ...

Submergence of wetlands as a result of human-induced subsidence and faulting along the upper Texas Gulf coast.
Two major contributing factors to wetland loss in the northern Gulf of Mexico are faulting and subsidence. Thousands of hectares of wetlands have been converted to either open water or shallow subaqueous flats since the ...

Decline of submerged vegetation in the Galveston Bay system: chronology and relationships to physical processes
(University of Texas at Austin, Bureau of Economic Geology, 1990)
A completed study examines major regions of Galveston Bay where submerged halophytes have declined since the 1950's and compares them with nearby remaining sites where plants still persist. The approach involved compilation ...
