The Brazos River is the namesake of Brazoria County. 1st: It is the LARGEST river in Texas between the Rio Grande and Red River. (Source: TPWD, Analysis of Texas Waterways) miles: The river is approximately miles long from the headwater source in New Mexico. The watershed encompas square Size: 2MB.   Some Brazoria County residents who live east of the Brazos River might not be able to access their homes for several days or weeks following .

  The Brazos River was called the “Rio de Los Brazos de Dios” by early Spanish explorers to the area. The English translation is “The River of the Arms of God”, and it’s the 11th-longest river in America running 1, miles from its headwaters to its mouth, often used to mark a boundary between East and West : Spring Sault. The Brazos River is the largest river between the Rio Grande and the Red River has a total length of about miles from the source of its longest fork. The river flows through most of the major physiographic regions of Texas. The Brazos has three upper forks: the Double Mountain, the Salt Fork.

  A hydrological study using oxygen isotopic ratios and salinities was carried out in the San Bernard-Brazos River Estuaries, Brazoria County, Texas, USA, to understand the influence of 4 fresh water sources draining into the area, Brazos River, San Bernard River, Oyster Creek, and Jones Creek, on various parts of the Gulf Intra-Coastal Waterway (GIW) that transects these rivers half to 1 mile Cited by: 3.

Bottom sediment from a square-mile area offshore from the mouth of the Brazos River, Texas, has been analyzed statistically to determine the pattern and processes of sedimentation of the neritic environment and of a modern delta.

The Brazos delta is characterized by topset beds of poorly sorted laminated sand, silt, and clay, foreset beds. The Brazos River leads all Texas rivers in rates of flow. Its watershed encompassessquare kilometers and includes large sections of north-central Texas and eastern New Mexico.

The average annual suspended-sediment yield of the Brazos is the highest of all rivers in Texas, 39 metric tons per square kilometer (Curtis et al. Sedimentation of the Brazos River System: Storage in the Lower River, Transport to Shelf and the Evolution of a Modern Subaqueous Delta.

Doctoral dissertation, Texas A & M University. Available electronically from http: / / / / Brazoria Reservoir (Brazos River Basin) Brazoria Reservoir is an off-channel reservoir and is located about six miles southwest of Angleton in central Brazoria County, beside the Brazos River.

This reservoir is owned and operated by Dow Chemical Company for industrial water supply purpose. The Brazos River, located predominantly within the state of Texas, has the highest water and sediment discharge of all rivers in the state, and ranks second behind the Mississippi River in terms of sediment load delivered to the Gulf of Mexico.

This river is the only Texas river. The Brazos River has crested in Rosharon, along the Fort Bend-Brazoria County line, but federal projections show it will still rise another feet farther south near West Columbia, cresting.

The Brazos River, called the Rio de los Brazos de Dios by early Spanish explorers (translated as “The River of the Arms of God”), is the longest river in Texas and the 11th longest river in the United States at 1, miles from its headwater source at the head of Blackwater Draw, New Mexico to its mouth at the Gulf of Mexico with a 45, sq mi drainage basin.

A bar on the Brazos River near Calvert, Texas, has been analyzed in order to determine the geologic meaning of certain grain size parameters and to study the behavior of the size fractions with transport.

The aquifer, one of 21 minor aquifers in the State, supplies water for irrigation, domestic, stock, and commercial use. The Brazos River alluvium aquifer likely will become more important in the future as demand for water increases.
