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 major element chemistry, major and trace chemical composition, total sulfur content, inorganic and organic carbon for soil and sediment samples from selected stations in the northeastern [...]

Purpose

The purpose of this dataset is to define the inorganic and organic carbon, major element chemical composition, major and trace chemical composition, total sulfur chemical composition, the presence of methyl mercury in soil and sediment samples from selected stations in South Carolina and the northeastern US during the 2015 pilot implementation of the SCoRR strategy.
