Tidal zonation on ocean beach and bay shore

Figure 2. Ocean beach and bay shore tideland zonation (from Titus, 1998). Florida, Alabama, and Mississippi own up to the wet beach on the ocean. Louisiana claims up to the dry beach. Texas owns the wet beach, but maintains a rolling easement on the dry beach for public access. All states claim up to the mean high water mark on the bay side.
