Attached are photos from Thursday at low tide showing the new establishment of Spartina alterniflora on the Saw Mill Creek WMA mudflat.
This mudflat has been without vegetation since I have known it (1997). It seems that Sandy changed the elevation, which is allowing a healthy establishment of Spartina.
We hope to measure past and current LiDAR to determine exactly the magnitude of the elevation change in this area. (Thanks, Francisco!)
