Feasibility study to address wetland change affected by flooding through
subsidence, sea-level rise, and storm impact on the Chenier plain.
Information to be Derived
Environmental variables: depth to 60 cm, vegetation, grain-size, total carbon,
salinity, elevation, pH, diatoms, foraminifera.
Nine peat cores and nine push cores were collected during this field activity.
D. Wagner and J. Sanford created a chilled transport storage device. M. Marot
provided push-coring equipment. J. Bernier and K. Kelso provided peat-coring
equipment, M. McLaughlin and N. Buster provided expertise in X-raying cores for
analysis. L. Sharp (LDNR), G. Steyer (USGS/NWRC)  Airboat, extra push core
equipment, YSI, and GPS.  09WCC01_Core # (01-09) A/B
A= Push core, B= Peat core
Platform used;Airboat (LDNR & LDWF)
Version 2.1
Assessment of wetland storm impact, recovery, coastal change, and subsi
dence on the Chenier plain / Wetlands and Coastal Change.
