Dry Weight, Volume and % Organic Carbon in Mangrove Sediment Cores Collected in September 2018 in J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge, Sanibel Island, Florida, United States

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

Sediment cores (1 m in depth) were collected at each of three mangrove sites at J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel Island, Florida. At each site, one core was collected in the hydrogeomorphic zone called the fringe, which is the area directly adjacent to the ocean. The other core was collected in the zone called the basin, which is the large area, often behind a small berm, that receives less direct tidal energy. All cores were sectioned and measured for sectional volume, dry weight and % organic carbon (OC) by weight.
