I am interested in determining the factors controlling salt marsh growth and resilience to drowning under sea level rise. Currently, I am comparing the relative importance of sea level rise and suspended sediment supply in driving salt marsh areal growth and vertical sediment accretion along the Oregon Coast. I am additionally interested in quantifying carbon burial rates in these systems.
