  • Oregon's estuaries are important ecosystems for scientific study. Consequently, knowledge of what research has been conducted helps us identify benchmarks and plan new projects. A comprehensive bibliography of published research, technical reports, local documents, and data sets is one means of recording this knowledge. For these reasons, the Guin Library staff have compiled bibliographies on Netarts Bay, the Salmon River Estuary, Siletz Bay, Yaquina Bay, the Alsea River Basin, the Yachats River Estuary and the Umpqua River Basin.
  • The Salmon River (Lincoln County, Oregon) has a small (438 acres), relatively undeveloped estuary. The area gained protection in 1974, when an act of Congress made the Salmon River estuary part of the Cascade Head Scenic Research Area. Today, the estuary is notable for ongoing studies of formerly diked sections that have been restored to tidal marshlands. This bibliography attempts to identify research on physical, biological and cultural aspects of the Salmon River estuary and the Cascade Head Scenic Research Area, with an emphasis on fisheries and natural resources. In addition to some attention to the area’s pre-history, references date from Theodore Talbot’s trip through the region in 1849 up to June, 2023.
