The fifty-six short papers composing the proceedings represent the concerted work of numerous scientists with a knowledge of, and concern for, Galveston Bay. These papers are the result of an invitation to the scientific community for contributions centered on estuarine problems already identified and agreed upon by consensus as a Galveston Bay Priority Problems List. Reports on work in progress were encouraged, as well as completed projects. These contributions have helped successfully accomplish four broad goals: first, to identify scientific work on Galveston Bay being conducted by institutions other than the GBNEP; second, to promote peer interaction amount the principle investigators involved in the research; third, to improve the understanding of estuarine problems in need of management solutions; and finally, to encourage project coordination in an ecosystem context.
