About This Publication
This publication, the second of a series of seven atlases of the Texas Coastal Zone, presents an inventory of environments and resources of the Beaumont-Port Arthur area. Comprising Jefferson, Orange, and parts of Newton, Jasper, Hardin, Liberty, Chambers, and Galveston Counties, the study area extends from the 5-fathom line in the Gulf of Mexico to approximately 50 miles inland.

The Beaumont-Port Arthur Atlas contains 9 full-color maps, consisting of a basic environmental geologic map and 8 special-use environmental maps. The basic environmental geologic map published at a scale of 1:125,000-shows resource and environmental units (geologic substrate and soils), biologic units, active and potentially active physical process units, and man-made units. The special-use environmental maps are prepared at a scale of 1:250,000. These maps include (1) physical properties, (2) environments and biologic assemblages, (3) current land use, (4) mineral and energy resources, (5) active processes, (6) manmade features and water systems, (7) rainfall, stream discharge, and surface salinity, and (8) topography and bathymetry. The Environmental Geologic Atlas series is designed for use in regional planning for improved use of coastal resources.
