Measuring tidal inundation in a marsh shoreline

A man kneels in a grassy marsh shoreline with a boat in the water behind him.

Detailed Description

Joseph Terrano of the USGS St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center prepares water level loggers to install near the marsh shoreline in Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, Mississippi. Data collected by these water level loggers will be used to measure tidal inundation on the marsh surface for use in sediment transport studies.
