Bathymetric Grid for a Wave Exposure Model of Grand Bay, Mississippi

Coastal marshes are highly dynamic and ecologically important ecosystems that are subject to pervasive and often harmful disturbances, including shoreline erosion. Shoreline erosion can result in an overall loss of coastal marsh, particularly in estuaries with moderate- or high-wave energy. Not only can waves be important physical drivers of shoreline change they can also influence shore-proximal vertical accretion through sediment delivery. For these reasons, estimates of wave energy can provide a ...
