Field Activity 2015-073-FA

Identifier 2015-073-FA
Purpose Observe salt marsh erosion over time at two different sites with the same salt marsh. Hypothesizing if waves flow in the direction of a salt marsh at a high velocity then the salt marsh will erode at a greater rate than that of a salt marsh with little to no wave disturbance.
