Status and Trends of Inland Wetland and Aquatic Habitats of the Brownsville-Harlingen Area
The University of Texas’ Bureau of Economic Geology (BEG) proposes to determine spatial and temporal changes in inland marshes, mangroves, tidal flats, forested and riparian wetlands, and water bodies in a portion of the Brownsville-Harlingen area. This project is in the fifth phase of an ongoing strategy to study the status and trends of wetland and aquatic habitats along the Texas coast. The BEG has completed status and trends work for the entire barrier island system, the inland environments in the Corpus Christi-Coastal Bend and Beaumont-Port Arthur areas, and has begun work for the Matagorda Bay area under Grant Cycle 13.
