Studies of the Effects of Alterations of Freshwater Inflows into Matagorda Bay Area, Texas: Phase 2 Final Report


The purpose of Phase 2 (and this report) are to document the identified information deficiencies, review their relative importance to later phases of the Matagorda Bay study, and recommend a programme of work for Phase 3 addressing these topics. Reference to the general literature is made as necessary to explicate the nature of these deficiencies. The single most important reference is of course the Phase 1 report, Ward, Armstrong et al. (1979) and appendices, which are referred to throughout simply as the Phase 1 report.
