TAMPA BAY AREA SCIENTIFIC INFORMATION SYMPOSIUM

BASIS 1 Cover

May 1982

Editors: Sara-Ann F. Treat, Joseph L. Simon, Roy R. Lewis III, Robert L. Whitman, Jr.

The Tampa Bay Area Scientific Information Symposium or BASIS had as its main goal the summary of all existing scientific information on Tampa Bay. Invited review papers were presented on the physical, chemical, geological, meteorological, biological, anthropological and economic aspects of Tampa Bay and the immediate Bay area. The public presentation of the invited and contributed papers occurred on May 3-6, 1982. Although the information presented here is largely technical in nature, efforts have been made to make presentations of use to nontechnical persons.
