November 19th, 2015: “South Atlantic salt marsh mapping: An update on regional mapping and synthesis” with Tom Allen, East Carolina University

Salt marshes are essential resources for coastal conservation, yet mapping their extensive distribution with spatial accuracy and thematic detail important to conservation has remained a challenge. The vulnerability of salt marshes to sea level rise also reflects complex interactions between hydrodynamics, ecogeomorphology, and relative sea-level rise rates that require localization. This presentation reports on development and refinement of satellite-derived maps of salt marsh distribution across the South Atlantic and associated sub-regional, fine-scale mapping and vulnerability assessment.
