Historic shoreline changes in Texas.
MetadataShow full item record
The Texas coastal zone has come under more intensive investigation as coastal areas increasingly become valuable to private landowners, industrial concerns, and government agencies. Although research is in process, coastal changes have not been identified in many areas. The net changes in mean low water (MLW) position at 226 points on the Texas coast have been examined using both the earliest and newer official topographic surveys. Shoreline changes at selected points have been examined in greater detail to suggest uses and limitations of the new MLW change information.
