Field Activity 2014-657-FA

Identifier 2014-657-FA
Purpose Characterize tidal flat and neashore benthic habitats response to large-scale wetland restoration and climate change; quantify suspended and bed load sediment transport; map seagrass distributions; map geomorphic change
Location Skokomish Delta, Hood Canal, WA
Summary grainsize data on FAD
Info derived grain Size, carbon, invertebrate biomass/community structure, suspended and bedload sediment flux over tide cycle; seagrass distribution; nearshore and channel change
