Description

This dataset provides mean stem diameter, mean height, dominant species, hydrogeomorphic zone (HGM), and stem density for vegetation in herbaceous wetlands collected in the Atchafalaya and Terrebonne basins in southeastern coastal Louisiana. The data were collected between 2021-03-21 to 2021-03-31 during the Delta-X Spring 2021 deployment, and from 2021-08-19 to 2021-08-27 during the Fall deployment. Field measurements were conducted at six sites in the Atchafalaya (N = 3) and Terrebonne (N = 3) basins. Five of the sites were adjacent to sites from the Coastwide Reference Monitoring System (CRMS), and the other site was in the Wax Lake Delta (WLD) without appropriate adjacent CRMS sites. Sites in both basins were chosen to represent a salinity gradient including freshwater, brackish, and saline ecosystems. At each herbaceous wetland site, duplicate sampling stations (30 m apart) were established parallel to the wetland edge at 25 and 50 m within the intertidal zone to capture within site variability in vegetation dynamics and soil properties. The data are provided in comma-separated values (*.csv) format.
