Area Lower Garcia / Estuary
Topic Stream Channel: Cross-Sections - Garcia Estuary XS-1, 1991-1998
Caption:  This chart shows surveys of the Garcia River Estuary cross-section XS-1 from surveys conducted in 1991, 1995, and 1998 and summarized by Jackson (1998). He noted that "the area of the cross section has increased with each successive survey. Between 1991 and 1995 the area increased by 10%. Between 1995 and 1998, the area increased an additional 2%, relative to 1991. Thus, erosion appears to be the dominant process at this cross section." This indicates that the river is down cutting here and fish habitat is increasing. See InfoLinks for more information.
