Summary

In 2012, Hurricane Sandy struck the Northeastern US causing devastation among coastal ecosystems. Post-hurricane marsh restoration efforts have included sediment deposition, planting of vegetation, and restoring tidal hydrology. The work presented here is part of a larger project funded by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) to monitor the post-restoration ecological resilience of coastal ecosystems in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. The U.S. Geological Survey Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center made in-situ observations during 2018-2019 and 2022-2023 at two sites: Thompsons Beach, NJ and Stone Harbor, NJ. Marsh creek hydrodynamics and water quality including currents, waves, water levels, water temperature, salinity, [...]

Purpose

The ratio of unvegetated area to vegetated area (UVVR) was calculated from a regional dataset of UVVR mapped in 30-m cells. A shapefile was created for two sites, Thompsons Beach and Stone Harbor, NJ, to calculate UVVR in each marsh. The UVVR is an important metric for determining the vulnerability and resiliency of salt marshes. The UVVR was calculated for each year from 2014 to 2018 to evaluate marsh restoration efforts.
