It also contains a description of activities and their impacts on wetlandsaquatic resources and a discussion of land use trends and development pressure in the estuary. It is designed to provide a method and the necessary base information for evaluation of the specific and cumulative effects of typical development activities on lands and wetlands of the study area.
