Coast lines: Can the loss of Texas coastal wetlands be halted...or reversed?
MetadataShow full item record
Since the mid-1950s, wetland loss has increased to an alarming rate due to subsidence; this subsidence has been induced by withdrawal of groundwater, oil, and gas. A wetland recreation or restoration project is underway in the Galveston Island State Park.
