Assessment of Wetland Area Change and Shoreline Erosion Due to Hurricane Sandy

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on

Documenting and understanding the occurrence of wetland loss and shoreline erosion along the east coast of the United States as a result of Hurricane Sandy will provide for effective planning, protection, and restoration activities.  In this effort, we are using multiple dates (1984-2013) of satellite data to evaluate landscape changes.  This analysis will enable a comparison between historical rates of wetland change and hurricane-induced change.
