Principal Investigator(s): Gordon Anderson, Karen Balentine, Paul Nelson, Thomas Smith
Information Specialist(s): Gordon Anderson
Data Type(s): Sampling: Biology, Sampling: Geology
Scientific Purpose/Goals: 1) Determining the response of mangrove forests to disturbance and sea-level rise. 2) Looking for evidence of historic fires in freshwater wetlands in ENP.
Start Port/Location: Various, all within Everglades NP
End Port/Location: Various, all within Everglades NP
Start Date: 2009-07-20
End Date: 2009-07-24
Equipment Used: Peat Corer
Information to be Derived: 1) Change in wetland surface elevation 2) For the cores: grain size, organic / inorganic matter content, bulk density, presence-absence of charcoal fragments
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: This fieldtrip will undertake regularly quarterly sampling of Sediment Erosion Tables (SET) in Everglades NP and collect sediment cores to use in reconstructing fire history in several locations in the Park.
Staff: Gordon Anderson, Karen Balentine, Paul Nelson, Thomas Smith
Notes: Additional Platform: Chevy Silverado (GSA lease). Additional Equipment: Surface elevation table, Russian peat corer.
