  • Description:
    "The Corpus Christi Bay system is one of Texas' major estuaries, with a surface area of almost 600 square kilometers of water, grass beds, tidal flats and salt marshes. Unlike most U.S. estuaries, the Corpus Christi system is located in a semi-arid climate, one that receives less than 70 cm of rain annually. Evaporation exceeds precipitation, causing the water to be hypersaline. Droughts, floods and hurricanes cause continual environmental variation, and the estuary is compartmentalized into several bodies of water with different hydrological and sedimentary regimes. Recent changes have been associated with human activity in the area, such as dredging, shipping, sewage disposal, filling of wetlands, and energy exploration. This annotated bibliography compiles citations of publications relating to the physics, chemistry, biology and sociology of the Bay system, information that will be useful to those who study the ecology and dynamics of the Bay and the effects of development on the system and the area. A list of key words directs the user to citations by subject area"--Texas A & M University sea grant publication website (http://texasseagrant.org/publications/category/1983-publications/P15)
