ItemGalveston East Beach, Inc. vs. The State of Texas(1965-01-05) District Court of Galveston County, Texas, 10th Judicial DistrictDecision, rendered in 1965, of a 1962 lawsuit by Galveston East Beach, Inc. against the State of Texas, seeking to affirm the plaintiff's rights of ownership to a parcel of beachfront land. Plaintiff claimed that there was no public easement on its land. The court ruled that while the plaintiff did indeed own that land, it was still subject to a public easement. Consequently, the plaintiff was found not to have the right to barricade or otherwise close the disputed beach off from the public. ItemEcology of Cox Bay, Texas. Final report before power plant operation, 1971.(1971) Moseley, F.N.; Copeland, B.J.;No abstract available ItemTexas Gulf Shoreline From the Rio Grand Northward to the Mansfield Jetties(The University of Texas at Austin, 1973) Bureau of Economic Geology, The University of Texas at Austin ItemReport of Golden Crescent Council of Governments on Beach Erosion Control(1973) Golden Crescent Council of GovernmentsFollowing is a brief report that presents the status of activities related to the control of beach and shoreline erosion in bay of the Texas Coast. As requested by the Board of Directors the staff of the Golden Crescent Council of Governments has conducted a quick search of related programs looking toward a beach erosion control project in Calhoun County. To inform you that such projects are being contemplated and implemented, the findings of this brief search are being reported to individuals concerned with coastal lands. ItemCharacteristics of Gulf Beaches; Mustang Island and North Padre Island, Texas(The University of Texas at Austin, 1973) Bureau of Economic Geology, The University of Texas at Austin ItemNatural Hazard Response and Planning in Tropical Queensland(University of Colorado Institute of Behavioral Science, 1978-07) Oliver, JohnThis paper analyzes the problems of natural hazard response and planning in tropical Queensland, Australia. It examines whether concepts and findings developed by natural hazard studies, particularly in the USA, are applicable to other hazard prone areas, in this case that of tropical Queensland. Comparative studies require, first of all, the examination of the nature and behavior of the natural hazard. Attention is directed to the particular complex of hazard conditions which result from tropical cyclones, so that it can be assessed whether any distinctive features characterize their behavior in the Queensland area. A survey of the relevant circumstances of the economy and society is then undertaken. From this it is possible to examine the particular effects upon the coastal communities that may arise in the Queensland area from the occurrence of tropical cyclones. These preliminary surveys lead to the main analysis of hazard response and of the forms of adjustment that are available in the circumstances discussed in the first part of the paper. It becomes apparent that a number of final assessments must await further investigations in depth. In the case of tropical Queensland, as elsewhere, the importance of additional natural hazard research is evident. Nevertheless the paper can contribute to the comparative understanding of the significance of the tropical cyclone hazard.

ItemPublications: Sea Grant College Program, Texas A&M University(1981)Catalog of publication produced by the Texas A&M Sea Grant College Program since its beginning in 1968. ItemGalveston County Shore Erosion Study Volume I(1981) U.S. Army Engineer District, GalvestonThe Galveston County Shore Erosion Study has been the vehicle to investigate erosion problems along the Gulf and bay shorelines of Galveston County and the Gulf beach at the Village of Surfside Beach in Brazoria County. The primary purposes of the study have been to determine the magnitude and extent of the shore erosion problems in these areas and to develop suitable plans for eliminating or minimizing the problems. ItemProbability of Hurricane/Tropical Storm Conditions: A User's Guide for Local Decision Makers(United States Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, 1983-06) Carter, T. MichaelThe purpose of this manual is to explain in detail what these probabilities represent, how they are computed, how they should be interpreted, and how they can be most effectively utilized in decision making for such preparatory actions such as evacuation, setting up shelters, or industrial plant shutdowns. ItemTax Increment Financing Program: Reinvestment Zone IX(1983-11-02) Grants DepartmentThe Grants and Management Department has prepared a project plan for the Central City Beach Area Reinvestment Zone in accordance with the Texas Tax Increment Financing Act of 1981, as amended August 29, 1983. The most important implication of the tax increment legislation is that it provides a potential mechanism for financing public improvements and other public costs that previously did not exist. The traditional methods of financing capital improvements are constrained by budget limitations. ItemThe ecology of Pacific Northwest coastal sand dunes: a community profile(US Fish and Wildlife Service, 1984) Wiedemann, Alfred M. ItemThe Economic Impact and Valuation of Florida's Saltwater Beaches- Some Preliminary Findings on Resident and Tourist Beach Users(1984-11) Bell, Frederick W.; Leeworthy, Vernon R."The Economic Impact and Valuation of Florida's Saltwater Beaches- Some Preliminary Findings on Resident and Tourist Beach Users" presents estimates of resident and tourist beach users' economic impact in terms of sales, employment, wages and state tax revenues generated in Florida. Annual estimates are provided for residents while only one-half a years impact is estimated for tourists. Also included are estimates of the benefits received by residents and tourists visiting Florida's saltwater beaches and these flows are translated into estimates of the present asset value of Florida's saltwater beaches. With the use of a hypothetical beach, it is also shown how estimates of beach values can be utilized in evaluating the economic feasibility of beach renourishment and erosion control.
