Sediment input into a floating freshwater marsh: Effects on soil properties, buoyancy, and plant biomass

Abstract

Coastal restoration strategies in the Mississippi River Delta Plain include use of direct sediment additions as well as river diversions to reintroduce fresh water and sediments into coastal marshes. Often, these diversions are located in the upper parts of the coastal basins, where fresh water floating marshes predominate. Floating marshes are wetlands of… (More)
