Field Activity 2014-322-FA

Identifier 2014-322-FA
Alternate names 14CTB02
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 67 surface grab samples, 48 sand auger sites, 39 trenches, 40 estuarine grabs, and 10.5 line-km GPR data (44 lines).
Info derived Sediment characterization (physical parameters - grain size, organic content, bulk density, radiochemistry, foraminiferal analysis)
Comments R/V Mako used for estuarine sampling.
