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.999
