Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Funding Program(s): Hurricane Sandy - Estuarine Response to Storm Forcing (AE03FKD)
Principal Investigator(s): Neil Kamal Ganju
Information Specialist(s): Steven Suttles
Data Type(s): Location-Elevation: Navigation, Time Series: Mooring (physical oceanography)
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Deploy instruments to collect time series data to support evaluations of sediment transport and wetland stability, which will support development of models of storm impacts on estuarine health, vulnerability of adjacent communities, and sustainability of restored and natural wetlands.
