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.
