Many of you have been asking about our “Synthesis of High and Low Marsh Mapping” project, which was funded by the South Atlantic LCC back in 2012. We’ve been working with the project lead, Dr. Tom Allen of Old Dominion University (previously East Carolina), and are excited to show you a sneak peek at the marsh map that was created as a part of this project. The spatial data for the marsh map, covering the full extent of the South Atlantic LCC’s Atlantic coast, should be available at the end of February. The final report for this project is expected to be released in mid March. We look forward to sharing this data with you and starting to explore all the ways that we can use this more detailed marsh habitat classification to improve the conservation planning for our cooperative.
