To quantify critical sediment transport parameters of diverse wetland complexes within 4 NCBN parks, Cape Cod NS, Fire Island NS, Gateway NRA and Assateague Island NS in order to inform management efforts. Suspended-sediment concentration data over tidal and seasonal timescales and will directly inform and improve the predications developed as part of the marsh modeling effort for these parks.
Jamaica Bay, NY and Great South Bay, NY
data collected at several locations in Jamaica Bay and Great South Bay
Deployment of time series instruments to measure currents, waves, pressure, and water-quality parameters. Water samples will be collected for suspended sediment concentration, volatile solids, and stable isotope analysis. Digital camera will be deployed to take time series photos of the marsh edge.
Initial deployment of instruments for year long study. Time series data collected for this study will be associated with this field activity.
