Atlas of Present Tidal Marshlands, San Francisco Bay, California

by Kent G. Dedrick,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Coastal Zone '93


An atlas of 26 maps (including index) is described showing existing tidal marshlands of the San Francisco Bay estuarine complex. This work is based upon a prior delineation and acreage study of 540 marshland tracts using 1980 aerial photography. Each tract is identified, and its acreage given on the resulting maps, using U.S. Geological Survey quadrangle maps as base maps. Properties and locations of the tracts are displayed in computer tables useful to baylands researchers. A computer document is provided for each marsh tract as a repository for field information. The atlas is useful in evaluating fisheries and waterflow habitat, and planning for restoration of former Bay marshlands to tidal action.
