Horsing around in Chincoteague Bay

Detailed Description

Following Hurricane Sandy, estuarine surface samples were collected to assess foraminiferal microfossil distribution in the estuary and for comparison with marsh cores to aid in identification of storm deposits and estuarine influences on the marsh. We spotted a few horseshoe crabs while sampling but this was certainly one of the largest.
