Galveston Bay National Estuary Program


In the past, a wealth of data has been collected from the Galveston Bay system, relating to the movement and quality of water, the biology of the bay, navigation, socioeconomics and fisheries, some of this information dating back more than a century. One of the tasks of the Galveston Bay National Estuary Program (GBNEP) was to locate and inventory these data. The specific objectives of this project were to: (1) survey local, state, and federal agencies and other organizations for data sets; (2) prepare in a standard format written descriptions of datasets; and (3) compile the data inventory in an electronic, searchable, microcomputer-based information base. The appendix contains the individual reports for the various data sets inventoried as a part of this project.
