St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center
The Sea-level and Storm Impacts on Estuarine Environments and Shorelines project assesses the physical controls of sediment and material exchange between wetlands and estuarine environments along the northern Gulf of Mexico (Grand Bay Alabama/Mississippi and Vermilion Bay, Louisiana) and the Atlantic coast (Chincoteague Bay, Virginia/Maryland).
