Data Entry for Upper Coastal Plain East Aquifers

Project Summary:

The objective is to enter data in the BRACS Database and use the data to map these four aquifers, characterize the brackish resources, and provide datasets that can be used for further exploration. The Upper Coastal Plain East consists of four stacked aquifers that are located directly north of the Gulf of Mexico in Texas, beginning approximately along the Brazos River and bordering Louisiana. The Upper Coastal Plain East study area consists of the Carrizo-Wilcox, Queen City, Sparta, and Yegua-Jackson aquifers.
