Information Specialist
Julie Bernier
Quantify accommodation-space formation, subsidence, and erosion in areas of
historic wetland loss
Information to be Derived
- GPS sediment-surface elevations will be used to estimate one-dimensional and
three-dimensional accommodation space formed by historic wetland loss
- Stratigraphic analysis will be used to estimate the magnitude and rate of 
subsidence and erosion between marsh and open-water core sites and complement 
analyses from cores collected in 2008
Julie Bernier, Gary Hill, Kyle Kelso (or Nancy DeWitt)
Shop time: Dave Wegener built a mount to attach the GPS antenna to the airboat
