The US Geological Survey Gulf of Mexico Integrated Science Web site contains information on the collaborative project being undertaken to assess and monitor Gulf of Mexico estuaries. "The key to understanding complex estuarine systems lies in understanding the interactions between geological framework and biological, geochemical and hydrological processes." The site provides information on the Tampa Bay pilot study, Galveston Bay Wetland Inventory Project, and the Atchafalaya and Mississippi River Delta Study. Other interesting links lead visitors to maps and aerial photographs of the areas, photo tours, reports, posters, and more. Anyone living near or interested in these unique habitats will find the site a good source of information.
