  • 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.
  • Yaquina Bay, located in Oregon's Lincoln County, has been extensively altered by jetties, dredging, landfills, roads and other human modifications. The Oregon estuary classification system designates Yaquina Bay as a Deep Draft Development estuary. It has been studied for decades, at times aggressively so. With renewed interest in Yaquina Bay as a research site, Oregon Sea Grant and the Environmental Protection Agency generously funded the beginning of this bibliography. The initial compilation was done by graduate student Heather Hiveley and the Guin Librarian, Janet Webster. Further citations were added by Susan Gilmont, under the direction of Janet Webster and Mary Markland. In addition to some attention to the area’s pre-history, the historical period covered extends from Theodore Talbot’s trip through the region in 1849 through June 2023.
