Item1291/1271 of dissolved organic iodine: A novel tool for tracing terrestrial organic matter in estuarine surface waters of Galveston Bay, Texas(2004 Feb 15) Schwehr KA; Santschi PH; Elmore D;Conference papers index ItemThe 1952 waterfowl hunting season.(1953) Singleton, J.R.;The 1952 waterfowl hunting season opened on October 31, following a period of extreme drought on the Texas Gulf Coast. Surface water was limited to flooded rice fields and irrigation systems, and to the coastal marshes, the latter being saline. Reports from the nesting grounds were highly favorable, and the prospects for a successful hunting season were not discouraging. These prospects would have been improved by rainfall in late October, which was not to be had. Waterfowl range conditions were very poor under these circumstances. Native foods were not abundant and marsh burning in August and September was of doubtful benefit to waterfowl in the absence of sufficient rainfall. Thus, in the northeastern portion of the coast, food was limited primarily to waste of lost grain in the harvested rice fields. Drought conditions did not restrict the growth of submerged saline aquatics of the shallow bays on the southern coast and native foods were sufficient. Thus, the season opened with a reduced carrying capacity on approximately one-half of the coast and normal carrying capacity on the remaining one-half. Item1970 National Power Survey(United States Federal Power Commission, 1970) United States Federal Power CommissionThe National Power Survey is reported in four parts. Part I contains the report of the Commission and the independent report of the Task Force on the Environment. Parts II and III contain the reports of the six regional advisory committees. Part IV contains the reports of the technical advisory committees on generation, transmission, distribution and load forecasting methodology. Two advisory committee reports, Underground Power Transmission, April 1966, and Prevention of Power Failures, Volume II, June 1967, have been given wide distribution as separate publications. The Commission's report is intended to serve as a general long-range guide rather than a directive or firm plan. It illustrates possible patterns of efficient development based upon assumptions outlined in the report and with the passage of time, modifications to reflect variances from the assumptions will be inorder. For example, if fast breeder nuclear reactors should be developed earlier than the present target dates, or if the price of fossil fuel should increase more than projected, the estimated generation from fossil fuel generation might be increased. Item1972 Annual Report(University of Houston, 1972) Texas Law Institute of Coastal and Marine ResourcesThe 1972 Annual Report of the Texas Law Institute of Coastal and Marine Resources, a consortium of state law schools, located at the Bates College of Law, University of Houston, is in two parts. The first reports to the Governor of Texas and members of the Legislature, pursuant to SCR 8 and SCR9 of the 62nd Legislature (1971), which directed the Interagency Council on Natural Resources and the Environment to work with the Texas Law Institute in analyzing the legal and institutional problems associated with the Coastal Zone Management Program. The second part summarizes the work of the Texas Law Institute accomplished pursuant to a grant from the National Science Foundation, and includes proposal for further research during 1973-74. Item1973 Annual report; Water Pollution Control Program.(The City of Houston, Department of Public Health, Pollution Control Division, 1973) The City of Houston, Department of Public Health, Pollution Control Division;This report details the activities and accomplishments of the City of Houston Water Pollution Control Program. It includes a description of the work procedures used and an analysis of the data collected on the quality of the water in the bayous of the city. Analysis of the data shows definite improvements in the water quality in all six of the major bayous; Sims, Brays, Buffalo, White Oak, Hunting, and Halls-Greens Bayou. There was an overall percentage improvement in dissolved oxygen of 9 percent and a 72.6 percent improvement in oil and grease over 1972. The coliform count was also significantly lower and the biochemical oxygen demand level had an overall average of only 10.2 milligram per liter which is well below the Texas Water Quality Board requirement for intrastate waters. ItemThe 1978 Houston-Galveston and Texas Gulf Coast Vertical Control Surveys(National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Ocean Survey, 1980) National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Ocean Survey;Comparisons between leveling surveys of different epochs are used to determine vertical displacement of permanent bench marks. Displacement of bench marks usually represents the movement of the surrounding area. In this report, the 1978 Houston-Galveston and Texas Gulf Coast releveling surveys are compared to the 1963, 1973, and 1976 releveling results. The changes in elevations of bench marks common to two or more epochs are tabulated and plotted in appendix A. From, these differences, contour maps were prepared for the 1963-78 and 1973-78 epochs in the 2 degrees x 2 degrees area of maximum subsidence. Annual subsidence rates computed for the 1973-78 period are about 25 percent less in the maximum subsidence area than the rates computed for the 1963-73 period. Item1978 releveling Harris-Galveston area.(Harris-Galveston Coastal Subsidence District, 1979) U.S. National Geodetic Survey.;This material represents adjusted elevation data derived from work done by the National Geodetic Survey (NGS) under the basic sponsorship of the Harris Galveston Coastal Subsidence District and with the aid of a number of interested federal agencies. The actual field work was completed in January, 1979. The elevations listed here are for specific bench marks and should not be used to represent the elevation of nearby structures, roadways, etc. The 1978 data is expected to be published in July, 1979 and will include maps showing the subsidence which occurred from 1973 to 1978.

ItemThe 1990 national shellfish register of classified estuarine waters(U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Strategic Assessment Branch, Office of Oceanography and Marine Assessent, National Ocean Service, 1991) U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Strategic Assessment Branch, Office of Oceanography and Marine Assessent, National Ocean Service;This register describes declines in estuarine water quality, decreases in the acreage of approved molluscan shellfish - growing waters, and continuing declines in the Nation's shellfish harvests. Relationships between these declines are discussed. Although declines in any given year, and even from 1985 to 1990, are not dramatic, an almost inexorable trend that threatens to destroy the harvest of wild or natural shellfish continues throughout the Nation's coastal areas.
