Description:

The General Land Office of Texas, the state's oldest agency, strives to balance economic development with preservation of its natural resources. The Coastal Erosion Planning and Response Program of the agency has an interesting Web site with information about the state's shorelines and its continuous efforts to slow erosion and maintain its beaches. Although many of the links on the page are about specific programs and regulations related to coastal erosion, the site also offers a new document entitled "Historical Shoreline Change on Big Reef Galveston Island," maps that document the changes, current digital photographs of the coast, a glossary of beach and erosion terms, and more.
