Purpose
Quantify subsidence and erosion in areas of historical wetland loss
Information to be Derived
Sediment-surface elevations and stratigraphic analysis (especially, peat
thickness and depth to the organic-clastic contact) will be used to estimate
the magnitude and rate of subsidence and erosion between marsh and open-water
core sites.
Summary
Collected 23 vibracores and 87 push cores across 4 areas of historic wetland
loss in Sabine NWR. Measured water depths at each core site and along transects
between core sites.
