Mapping the onset and progression of marsh dieback

December 31, 2010

Along the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) coasts, vast wetlands inject valuable nutrients and suspended and dissolved materials into the coastal ocean. Juncus roemerianus (black needlerush) wetlands, dominating coastlines in the northeastern GOM, transition to the Spartina alternifl ora (smooth cordgrass) coastline of Louisiana. Mixed marsh and mangrove barrier island systems occupy the southeastern and southwestern GOM [1,2].
