Highlighted Research: Mud on the Move

Mud on the Move: New Approaches to Sampling Suspended Sediment

“Mud on the Move” is testing methods for monitoring suspended sediment concentrations above the marsh surface at both China Camp and Rush Ranch, as well as in NERR sites in Mississippi and South Carolina.

The project aims to develop a feasible and accurate monitoring protocol to collect data needed to improve accuracy of marsh sustainability models.
