The Houston-Galveston Channel Project consists of about 65 miles of deepwater channels leading from the Gulf of Mexico to the Houston Turning Basin at the head of navigation and Galveston Channel, a side channel from Bolivar ...
An improved method for mapping oyster bottom using a global positioning system and an acoustic profiler
A method for rapidly and relatively inexpensively mapping oyster (Crassostrea virginica) bottom is described. The method uses an acoustic profiler to differentiate substrate type, a fathometer to assess bottom relief and ...

Seasonal changes in levels of parasitism of Perkinsus marinus (Mackin, Owen and Collier) in Crassostrea virginica (Gmelin), with special reference to the limited association between parasitism and temperature and salinity
(, 1984 198)
Twenty-six monthly samples of oysters (Crassostrea virginica ) were collected from Galveston Bay, Ttexas, from May 1979 to September 1981. Percent infection and weighted incidence (WI) of P. marinus were calculated for ...
Accuracy assessment and validation of classified satellite imagery of Texas coastal wetlands
Two methods of determining wetlands and landcover classification accuracy for Landsat thematic mapper (TM) imagery are presented and evaluated. A partial Landsat TM scene of the upper Texas coast (Galveston Bay) was ...
Detection of waterborne mutagens and characterization of chemicals in selected Galveston sites after an oil spill
In the summer of 1990, a collision of barge tankers occurred in Galveston Bay and approximately 500,000 gal of oil were spilled into the Bay. Several sites in Galveston Bay were sampled 5-7 d after the oil spill. We ...

An analysis of the main scientific papers dealing with long term low level effects of oil pollution
(, 1973 197)
2 approaches are appropriate to assessing probable chronic effects of oil pollution: (1) Comparison of spp composition and abundances in the vicinity of continuous introductions of oil into water (e.g. oil drilling platforms) ...
