Project Title & Description
Acreage & Condition Trends-Marshes DE Inland Bays
This project proposes to estimate the rates of historic marsh loss in the Inland Bays and apply a remotely sensed indicator of marsh condition as formal environmental indicator for the Inland Bays estuary program. The project will also provide satellite imagery to document the extent of Sudden Wetland Dieback in 2006 through 2008. Recovery of dieback will be determined between 2009 and 2010. Additionally, the 2008 upland wetland/boundary of tidal marshes will be mapped and existing data will be used to map scenarios of landward marsh migration based on landuse.
