Multi-scale satellite remote sensing for salt marsh mapping

NOAA Sea Grant Consortium at SC (Seed Project)

PI: Cuizhen (Susan) Wang


Summary: This project responds to the SC Sea Grant Consortium call in 2015 and targets its Strategic Area 1 – the Coastal and Ocean Landscape, Objective 1 – “Generate information on the biotic and abiotic processes that affect the long-term ecosystem condition and communication this information to coastal decision makers.” This research aims to document current distributions of salt marsh habitats in the North Inlet-Winyah Bay, one of the NOAA National Estuarine Research Reserves in South Carolina.
