The purpose of the study is to develop a segmentation scheme for the Galveston Bay System that will facilitate the other efforts planned by the Galveston Bay National Estuary Program (GBNEP). The study is organized around four tasks: (1) the evaluation of existing segmentation schemes, (2) evaluation of natural features and anthropogenic inputs, (3) determination of segmentation criteria, (4) and the drafting of the boundaries. To facilitate the management and presentation of the large amounts of geobased data accumulated, a geographic information system (GIS) was developed for the study area.
