Estuary Science Exchange

The Texas Water Development Board is pleased to announce the speakers for the kickoff to the Estuary Science Exchange - a Texas-wide forum for sharing estuarine science among professionals working on coastal issues. Following each presentation there will be time available for discussion.

Generally, the forum aims to:

  1. Encourage collaboration and working relationships among participants.
  2. Serve as a forum for participants to:
    1. Share research findings regarding natural events, changing environments, and ongoing issues.
    2. Introduce new projects or provide updates on ongoing activities.
    3. Discuss research methodologies or estuarine management tools for Texas estuaries.

Reach out to the Estuary Science Exchange team to be added to the distribution list, questions, comments, or assistance.
