Book Description

San Diego Bay is a shallow estuary surrounded by a large population center. Changes in the climate resulting from the last ice age yielded lower and then higher sea levels. Human activity influenced the Bay. Humans have also built several major cities and filled significant parts of the Bay. This book describes the natural history and evolution of the San Diego Bay Area over the last 50 million years through the present and into the future.
