GIS coupled with computer modeling is useful tool in providing a solution for future water resources planning and management specially water quality in coastal regions. This paper discusses the application of GIS specifically in monitoring water quality parameter such as suspended matter, pH, salinity and temperature patterns, phytoplankton density, turbidity, dissolved organic matter in seawater, and C:N ratio in surface and bottom sediment in Salinas de San Pedro, California, USA.
