Summary

Coastal communities are uniquely vulnerable to sea-level rise (SLR) and severe storms such as hurricanes. These events enhance the dispersion and concentration of natural and anthropogenic chemicals and pathogenic microorganisms that could adversely affect the health and resilience of coastal communities and ecosystems in coming years. The U.S. Geological Survey has developed the Sediment-Bound Contaminant Resiliency and Response (SCoRR) strategy to define baseline and post-event sediment-bound environmental health (EH) stressors. These data document the location, sampling techniques and field conditions observed while collecting soil and sediment samples from selected stations in the northeastern US during the 2015 pilot implementation [...]

Purpose

The purpose of this dataset is to define the location, sampling techniques used and field conditions observed while collecting soil and sediment samples from selected stations in the northeastern US during the 2015 pilot implementation of the SCoRR strategy.
