Sediment Exclusion Experiment

We visited our pilot sediment-exclusion plots in the Delaware River in November 2016.  The plots had been installed in May 2016, and we weren’t sure how well they’d stand up after 6 months.  We were also measuring surface elevation tables (SETs) installed at several locations at the field site.

The field crew: Arielle, Maddee, Brian, and Elise

The sediment exclusion plots look good after 6 months.

Arielle gets a nice cryo-core from one of the feldspar marker horizon plots.

We got nice differences in sediment deposition int he control (C) and exclusion (E) plots!
