Working in partnership with the MIT Seagrant; University of Massachusetts, Boston (Consortium for Ocean Sensing in the Nearshore Environment, COSINE); North and South Rivers Watershed Association, and others the Jones River Watershed Association will monitor geological, biological, and chemical conditions in local salt marshes with a combination of remote sensing and traditional on-the-ground techniques. Wireless network cameras will be deployed in key areas of change in a marsh for continuous visual monitoring of physical conditions and changes while minimizing physical damage to fragile marsh habitat. Geographic and biological surveys will be used to ground-truth the remotely sensed camera data. Issues such as climate change (especially sea level rise), regional salt marsh dieback, invasive species, etc will be the highlighted focus of this research.
