dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this report is to provide a preliminary qualitative assessment of potential offshore sand resources that might be suitable for replenishment of beaches along South Padre Island, Texas. The investigation involved a literature search and compilation of published and unpublished data to determine if deposits of beach-quality sand might be located on the shoreface and inner continental shelf near the Town of South Padre Island. The location of the study area and potential offshore sites of beach-quality sand are presented in Figure 1. It should be emphasized that this reconnaissance study does not provide the level of information needed to actually conduct offshore mining operations. Additional work involving sediment cores and high-resolution seismic surveys would be necessary to determine the quantity and quality of sand resources offshore of South Padre Island.
