Field Activity 2015-021-FA

Identifier 2015-021-FA
Purpose Deploy instruments to collect time series data to support evaluations of sediment transport and wetland stability, which will support development of models of storm impacts on estuarine health, vulnerability of adjacent communities, and sustainability of restored and natural wetlands.
Location Barnegat Bay, New Jersey, United States, Estuary
Summary Instrument deployment
Info derived Currents, turbidity, water level, water temperature, suspended sediment concentration.
