Field Activity 2014-301-FA

Identifier 2014-301-FA
Alternate names 14CTB01
Purpose Hurricane Sandy supplemental funding project GS-2A (Wetland Physical Change) - Characterize the surficial sediment of washover fans and back-barrier marshes and integrate data into vulnerability assessments. Estuarine Physical Response project - Collect and analyze surficial sediment for integration into estuarine model and establish a baseline dataset for future response scenarios.
Location Chincoteague Bay, Assateague Island, MD and VA
Summary 35 surface grab samples (onshore), 20 sand auger cores, 7 marsh push cores, 6 peat auger cores, 46 estuarine grab samples, 41 estuarine water column samples.
Info derived Sediment characterization (physical parameters - grain size, organic content, bulk density, radiochemistry, foraminiferal analysis)
Comments Horn Point Laboratory (University of Maryland cooperative) vessel and R/V Mako used for estuarine sampling. Sediment Samples are staged to be archived and are on the East Wall of the Sed Lab as of July 18th, 2018.
