NARRATOR: The estuary the world came to call San Francisco Bay is actually three bays and a vast inland river delta. San Francisco Bay proper is the most well known, with its ever-spectacular dance of air, wind, and water. To the north lies San Pablo Bay, nearly round in shape and exceedingly Size: KB. SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – In what may come as no surprise to Bay Area commuters, a global study on traffic congestion has placed the San Francisco area near the top of the list, when it comes to.

The San Francisco Bay Area, popularly referred to as the Bay Area or simply the Bay, is a populous region surrounding the San Francisco, San Pablo, and Suisun Bay estuaries in Northern gh the exact boundaries of the region vary depending on the source, the Bay Area is defined by the Association of Bay Area Governments to include the nine counties that border the Country: United States.   Low-lying Foster City, California, built on fill along the bay, is doing studies necessary to raise its dikes. Around the bay, there are other ways to temper storm surge and wave energy, he says.

Other authors (Grobbelaar, ; Tett, ) also observed a Z m: Z eu ratio of 6. Water from approximately 40 percent of California drains into San Francisco Bay carrying with it pollutants from point and nonpoint sources.

Up to 40, metric tons of at least 65 different pollutants enter the Bay annually. The vast majority of non point source pollution entering the Bay originates outside the Commission's jurisdiction.

Suspended-sediment and water samples were collected from San Francisco Bay in during low river discharge and after spring rains. All samples were analyzed for organophosphate, carbamate, and organochlorine pesticides; petroleum hydrocarbons; biomarkers; and polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons.

Controlling urban and upland runoff sources is critical to the success of maintaining water quality in this portion of the Bay. The story of San Francisco Bay is a case study in how such destructive human activity manifests at the local level and wreaks havoc on prized natural resources.
