Open-File Report 2015-1169

Sedimentological and Radiochemical Characteristics of Marsh Deposits from Assateague Island and the Adjacent Vicinity, Maryland and Virginia, Following Hurricane Sandy

Physical Parameters, Grain Size, and Radiochemistry


The table below contains field documentation, sediment characterization data, and imagery available for download for surficial and down-core sedments discussed in this report. Field Activity Collection System (FACS) documents, field logs and auger core logs are available in Portable Document Format (PDF) and can be viewed using the free software Adobe Acrobat Reader (http://get.adobe.com/reader). Collections of x-radiographs of marsh cores; high-resolution auger core photographs; and downcore bulk density, organic matter, grain size, and radiochemical activity graphs can be downloaded as a zipped Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) file. JPEG files can be viewed using standard image viewing software. Spreadsheets and documents in this report were created in Microsoft Office 2010. All spreadsheet data are also available in Comma-Separated Values (CSV) format. Metadata for applicable files are provided in Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGCD) format.
