Plant community establishment in a coastal marsh restored using sediment additions, Barataria Basin, Louisiana

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

This data release consists of vegetation cover, soil surface elevation (also called vertical land motion of the wetland (VLMw)), and vertical accretion data collected over 23 months beginning in May 2001 in a restored brackish marsh in southeast Louisiana, USA. Vegetation cover was estimated in permanent plots, and soil cores were collected for determination of bulk density, organic matter content and texture. VLMw was measured using rod surface elevation tables, while accretion was measured using feldspar marker horizons (i.e., RSET-MH technique).
