Thomas A. Tremblay, principal investigator

The object of this research, funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration through the Coastal Management Program and administered by the General Land Office of Texas, is to determine wetland status and trends and probable causes of trends along the Texas coast, using recent and historical aerial photographs supported by field surveys. Current wetland distribution (status) is determined by interpreting and digitizing wetlands on color infrared (CIR) photographs taken in 2001-2008. Historical distribution was based on photographs taken in the 1950's and 1979 and on historical GIS maps obtained from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS).
