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
ADCP transects at JoCo marsh in Jamaica Bay to estimate discharge using velocity index method along with deployed time series measurements. Water samples will be collected for suspended sediment concentration, and volatile solids. Recover all time series instruments deployed Jamaica Bay as part of this study.
Field work to make ADCP transects to measure discharge at site in JoCo marsh in Jamaica Bay, where time series instruments are now deployed. Recover all time series instruments after ADCP transects are complete. Data collected for this study will be associated with field activity (2017-045-FA) from initial deployment of the time series instruments in August 2017.
