To better understand suspended-sediment transport in a tidal slough adjacent to a large wetland restoration project, we deployed continuously-measuring temperature, salinity, depth, turbidity, and velocity sensors since 2010, and added a dissolved-oxygen sensor in 2012, at a near-bottom location
There are engineering steps that could be taken to help mitigate the dissolved-oxygen (DO) depletion.
A Sediment Budget for the Southern Reach in San Francisco Bay, CA: Implications for habitat restoration
As a result of regional groundwater overdrafts prior to the 1970s, parts of the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project project area have subsided below sea-level and will require between 29 and 45 million m3 of sediment to raise the surface of the subsided areas to elevations appropriate for tid
Trajectory of early tidal marsh restoration: Elevation, sedimentation and colonization of breached salt ponds in the northern San Francisco Bay
We conducted bathymetric surveys to map substrate elevations using digital elevation models and surveyed colonizing Pacific cordgrass (Spartina foliosa).
The primary goals for the short-term data needs studies were to provide baseline data for the SBSP Restoration Project and to provide a scientific basis for adaptive management decisions.
