Numerical Modeling of Sediment Dispersal Following Dredge Material Placements to Examine Possible Augmentation of the Sediment Supply to Marshes and Mudflats, San Francisco Bay, US

Recent studies of sea level rise in San Francisco Bay have indicated that the majority of tidal marshes surrounding the Bay are likely to lose marsh plant communities by 2100 because natural sediment accretion rates will not keep pace with sea level rise.

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

The South Bay Mercury Project: Using Biosentinels to Monitor Effects of Wetland Restoration for the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project

The South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project plans to convert 50-90% of the former salt evaporation ponds of South San Francisco Bay into tidal marsh habitat. This large-scale habitat restoration may change the distribution, bioavailability, and bioaccumulation of methylmercury.
