About This Publication
The Corpus Christi area extends from Kleberg County on the south to Refugio County on the north and includes many urban clusters in addition to the Greater Corpus Christi area. A wide variety of natural environments is present, including loess-covered uplands, Modern coastal barrier islands, shallow bays and related wind-tidal flats and fringing marshes, and flat land and mud uplands stretching for tens of miles inland from the elongate sand deposits of Encinal Peninsula. Live Oak Ridge, and Live Oak Peninsula.

Land use in the Corpus Christi area is varied. Urban-industrial lands fringe Nueces and Corpus Christi Bays, recreational lands extend along north Padre, Mustang, and San Jose Islands, and fertile croplands support profitable agricultural businesses in the area.
