Information Specialist
Michael Hayes
Characterize substrate and benthic invertebrate condition of the
nearshore/tidal flats of the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge following the
largest dike removal in the Pacific Northwest that occurred September 2009 to
recover salmon habitat and function This and subsequent repeat surveys through
2012 will quantify the response of nearshore/tidal flat geomorphology, benthic
and planktonic community composition and succession, food web connectivity, and
water quality conditions following dike removal providing essential empirical
data for developing models of nearshore ecosystem response to large-scale land
use. Last year baseline information was collected under FACS ID A-6-09-PS.
Information to be Derived
Substrate type, benthic invertebrate and phytoplankton community composition,
water quality, suspended sediment and detrital organic matter flux to tidal
flats, eelgrass cover, and eelgrass plant metrics (shoot density, internode
lengths, leaf length/width, epiphytes)
USGS Coastal Habitats in Puget Sound Large River Deltas.
