Field Activity 2016-344-FA

Identifier 2016-344-FA
Purpose Collecting coral framework samples (hand collection) from dredging outcrop exposure. Collecting peat cores and elevation data from mangrove deposits.
Location Government Cut/Miami Beach
Summary Collected peat-core records from Swan Key, Biscayne National Park, FL. We collected surface samples for foramineriferal analysis, took cores to reconstruct island stratigraphy (depth to Pleistocene bedrock), and replicate 6 m peat cores from the center of the island that will be analyzed to produce sea-level reconstructions. All sampling locations were surveyed with DGPS.
