ItemWater Resources Development in Texas 1991(U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Southwestern Division, 1991) U.S. Army Corps of EngineersThe U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is an engineer consultant agency to Congress. Most Corps' water resources projects are developed under specific congressional authorization. When local interests think a need exists for construction or improvement of a water resources project, they petition their representatives in Congress. The senator or congressman then requests that the appropriate congressional committee direct the Corps of Engineers to make a survey and determine if a viable solution exists. Authority for the survey study is provided either in the form of a resolution adopted by the appropriate Senate or House committee or by a congressional act. After approval, congressional appropriations are required to provide funding for the Corps to initiate the survey study. ItemMorphological Monitoring of a Storm-Dominated Microtidal Barrier Island, Galveston Island's Westend, Texas, USA(2004) Joiner, Nicole; Wren, P. Ansley; Dellapenna, Timothy; McInnes, Andrew1 CD-ROM with powerpoint/poster, project background, and project abstract. This pilot project is an ongoing monitoring program which quantifies the relationships between temporal and spatial scales of morphologic change on a heavily developed and modified transgressive barrier island. This project incorporates not only traditional cross-shore profiling techniques, but also established an along-shore spatial monitoring technique to determine shoreline migration. This involves tracing the wet line immediately after the high tide utilizing a post processed kinematic GPS mounted on an all terrain vehicle. Weekly monitoring enables determination of shoreline migration and deviation due to storm events and annual cycles. Archiving and analyses of these shore-term changes provides a long time series of shoreline position which will be used to project future coastal change. Preliminary results indicate that in response to astronomical tidal cycles and non-storm wave energies there is a net sediment migration from the northeast to the southwest. In October 2004 the Upper Texas Coast experienced a peripheral high energy event due to Hurricane Ivan. Consequently, the existing nourished templates were heavily scoured and introduced into the littoral system resulting in significant accretion at the extreme west end of the island.

Continuation of these fisheries depends on reliable age and growth information for use in yield models. Red drum have been aged using length-frequency distributions, scales, otoliths, and mark-recapture methods, but none of the methods have been validated for wild populations. An on-going tagging program for red drum n Texas bays was used to determine if valid annuli are formed on scales.
