for the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project (SBSPRP or the project) by the University of San Francisco and H. T. Harvey & Associates. This work focused on a key uncertainty affecting the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project planning and adaptive management process (EDAW et al. 2007), specifically: “Will sediment accretion in restored tidal areas be adequate to create and to support emergent tidal habitat ecosystems within the 50-yr projected time frame?” To address this question, our team monitored sediment dynamics at Pond A6 (breached in 2010) and elevations of vegetation establishment at Ponds A6 and A21 (one of the Island Ponds and breached in 2006) between December 2010 and March 2013.
