Great Barnstable Marsh Field Results

We’ve been working hard in the lab to process the cores that we collected in Great Barnstable Marsh, MA. Here are some initial field results! Figure 1: Measured elevation (North American Vertical Datum of 1988) using a Real Time Kinematic unit for the ditched and unditched marsh at 0 to 100m away from the creek.…

Modeling the spatial dynamics of marsh ponds in New England salt marshes

Check out the Geomorphology paper (Mariotti et al., 2020) that has been published based on Great Barnstable Marsh, MA model results! Abstract: Ponds are common features on salt marshes, yet it is unclear how they affect large-scale marsh evolution. We developed a spatially explicit model that combines cellular automata for pond formation, expansion, and drainage,…
