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.
Equipment or personnel only. Data, if any, are managed under a different field activity.
Jamaica Bay, NY and Great South Bay, NY
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.
Other in staffing is Julia Moriarty.
Recovery of deployed instruments in Great South Bay, NY to avoid damage due to expected Winter ice. Time series data collected for this study will be associated field activity (2017-045-FA) from deployment in August 2017.
