Field Activity 08SWL01

Identifier 08SWL01
Purpose Quantify subsidence and erosion in areas of historical wetland loss
Location Louisiana Chenier Plain, Sabine NWR
Summary Collected 23 vibracores and 87 push cores across 4 areas of historic wetland loss in Sabine NWR. Measured water depths at each core site and along transects between core sites.
Info derived 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.
Per OPS Manager, platform was transferred to the Gainesville office around 2016.
