Field Activity 09WCC01

Identifier 09WCC01
Purpose Feasibility study to address wetland change affected by flooding through subsidence, sea-level rise, and storm impact on the Chenier plain.
Location Grand Chenier, LA
Summary Push and peat cores were collected at nine sites located within the saline and brackish marsh.
Info derived X-radiographs, grain size, paleontological (diatoms, forams), bulk density, organic matter
Comments D. Wagner & J. Sanford created a chilled transport storage device. Additional equipment: YSI Model 30 conductivity meter.
Per OPS Manager, platform was transferred to the Gainesville office around 2016.
