Purpose
Characterize the surface elevation changes of wetlands in the coastal
Everglades in relation to hydrology, disturbance and vegetation dynamics.
Information to be Derived
Patterns of wetland surface elevation change over time in relation to
environmental variables.
Summary
This task of the project collects quarterly measure of wetland surface
elevation change at nine sites along two drainages in the coastal Everglades:
the Lostman's River and the Shark River.  Sites vary from freshwater wetlands
(in headwater areas) to mangrove forests in downstream, tidal regions.
Notes
This represents a portion of Task 9 of BASIS+ project 2090B6J
Platform used:19' SeaCraft, 17' Parker, Airboat, Helicopter (ENP), Chevy 
Silverado (GSA lease)
