Algal pigments, meiofauna, and macrofauna from two edaphic salt marsh microhabitats in Galveston Bay, Texas, USA
(, 2001 Dec)
Small-scale spatial patterns in abundance on the salt marsh surface were examined by comparing microalgal pigment concentrations and densities of meiofauna and macrofauna between interculm and interplant microhabitats in ...
Phytoplankton photopigments as indicators of estuarine and coastal eutrophication

Isolation of colloidal monomethyl mercury in natural waters using cross-flow ultrafiltration techniques
(, 2001 Dec)
A series of experiments was conducted to evaluate the appropriateness of cross-flow ultrafiltration (CFUF) techniques for the determination of the phase speciation of monomethyl mercury (MeHg) in natural waters. Spiral-wound ...
A comparison of factors controlling sedimentation rates and wetland loss in fluvial-deltaic systems, Texas Gulf coast
Submergence of coastal marshes in areas where rates of relative sea-level rise exceed rates of marsh sedimentation, or vertical accretion, is a global problem that requires detailed examination of the principal processes ...
