  Title: Central and North Gulf Coast, Texas
  Description:
  In this view of the central and north Gulf Coast of Texas (30.0N, 96.0W),
  San  Antonio Bay, Matagorda Bay and Galveston/Trinity Bay are clearly seen
  though  small sediment plumes at the tidal passes are visible.  The large
  field  patterns of irrigated agriculture highlights an ancient deltaic
  plain formed  by the Colorado and Brazos Rivers.  Many manmade lakes and
  reservoirs, as far  west as Lake Belton and Lake Waco and as far east as
  Toledo Bend are visible.
