Subject Neotectonics; Nature -- Effect of human beings on; Climatic changes
Spatial Coverage Rio Grande; Texas; New Mexico; Mexico
Description The major Holocene coastal depocenter west of the Mississippi delta in the northwestern Gulf of Mexico is the Rio Grande delta at the Texas-State of Tamaulipas, Mexico, border, a system that began to form about 7,000 years ago. A project to define the origin of this low-lying and vulnerable delta, and most specifically to measure effects of sea level, land motion, and paleoclimate changes-and the more recent anthropogenic influences - has recently been initiated by Daniel Stanley of the Smithsonian Institution.
