Wetland surface elevation and vertical accretion were measured from 1996 to 1999-–2000 using a sediment elevation table (SET) and feldspar marker horizons in nine paired wetlands receiving Mississippi River water from the Caernarvon, West Pointe a la Hache (WPH), and Violet river diversions. The Caernarvon study sites had wetland surface elevation change rates ranging from 0.16±0.31 to 0.42±0.21 cm y−1. Vertical accretion ranged from 0.75±0.04 to 1.57±0.05 cm y−1, and shallow subsidence ranged… CONTINUE READING
