Quantify subsidence and erosion in areas of historical wetland loss
Louisiana Chenier Plain
Collected 25 vibracores and 10 push cores from 3 study areas between Leeville and Port Fourchon. Recorded water depths at each core site and along transects between core sites.
Sediment-surface elevations and stratigraphic analysis (especially, peat thickness and depth to the organic-clastic contact) will be used to estimate the magnitude and rate of subsidence and erosion between marsh and open-water core sites.
