Sediment Characteristics of the Inner Shelf and Environmental Geologic Map, Port Aransas Area, Texas: Preliminary Results


The purpose of the study is to determine the textural composition, depositional pattern and trace element geochemistry of the surficial sea floor sediments, the textural composition, stratigraphy and degree of consolidation of Holocene and upper Pleistocene sediments beneath the sea floor to the extent possible, to summarize the possible influence of water current movement on sediment dispersal patterns in the principal study area, and to classify the geologic environments of the inland area adjacent to Port Aransas.
