Houston-Galveston Navigation Channels Texas Project. Report 2. Two-dimensional numerical modeling of hydrodynamics
The Houston-Galveston Channel Project consists of about 65 miles of deepwater channels leading from the Gulf of Mexico to the Houston Turning Basin at the head of navigation and Galveston Channel, a side channel from Bolivar ...
An improved method for mapping oyster bottom using a global positioning system and an acoustic profiler
A method for rapidly and relatively inexpensively mapping oyster (Crassostrea virginica) bottom is described. The method uses an acoustic profiler to differentiate substrate type, a fathometer to assess bottom relief and ...
Accuracy assessment and validation of classified satellite imagery of Texas coastal wetlands
Two methods of determining wetlands and landcover classification accuracy for Landsat thematic mapper (TM) imagery are presented and evaluated. A partial Landsat TM scene of the upper Texas coast (Galveston Bay) was ...
Environmental significance of the uptake and depuration of planar PCB congeners by the American oyster (Crassostrea virginica )
Uptake and depuration of three highly toxic PCB congeners, i.e. PCBs 77, 126, and 169, by the American oyster (Crassostrea virginica ) were studied under environmental conditions. Compared with other PCB congeners, these ...
A stochastic simulation model of brown shrimp (Penaeus aztecus ives) growth, movement, and survival in Galveston Bay, Texas
A stochastic simulation model of brown shrimp (P. aztecus Ives) population dynamics in Galveston Bay, Texas, is described, validated, and used to evaluate the effects of management alternatives and changing environmental ...
Simulation modeling of estuarine ecosystems
(, 1980 197)
A simulation model has been developed of Galveston Bay, Texas ecosystem. Secondary productivity measured by harvestable species (such as shrimp and fish) is evaluated in terms of man-related and controllable factors, such ...
Food availability to natural oyster populations: Food, flow and flux
(, 1993 200)
Food availability to natural oyster (Crassostrea virginica) populations is dependent upon the quantity of food present, water flow speed, and oyster density. Field experiments were conducted (Confederate Reef, Galveston ...
Oyster culture in Galveston Bay
(, 1998 199)
Oyster culture in Texas is generally limited to the private oyster lease program in Galveston Bay. There are 43 private leases having 2322 acres located in mid-Galveston and East Galveston Bays. The transplanting of oysters ...
Biologic and hydrographic adjustment in a disturbed Gulf Coast estuary
East Bay, an arm of the Galveston Bay system of Texas, was studied during the summers of 1954, 1955, and 1956. The first study was made with the Bay in its natural state, the second investigation followed the excavation ...
Texas Shores -- the [Galveston] Bay (Volume 33, Number 1, Spring 2000)
A question of quality (Galveston Bay)
