Elevation change along a coastal wetland landscape gradient from tidal freshwater forested wetland to oligohaline marsh in the Southeastern U.S.A. (2009-2014) data

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

We assessed the resilience of wetlands to sea-level rise along a transitional gradient from tidal freshwater forested wetland (TFFW) to oligohaline marsh by measuring processes controlling wetland elevation. We identified fundamental differences in how resilience is maintained across wetland community types, which have important implications for management activities that aim to restore or conserve resilient systems.

Licence Below, we have included several statements concerning the ethical use of this dataset. We adopted the following statement regarding data archiving and sharing from Wright et al. (2004): "The authors believe that the archiving and sharing of large datasets is important for advancing ecology as a discipline. At the same time, for data sharing to be successful and sustainable, it is imperative that all those involved in data acquisition, archiving and use do so in an ethical manner. In particular, we believe that those individuals whose time, efforts and intellect designed and created the studies are acknowledged appropriately." Text in quotation from: Wright, I. J., P. B. Reich, M. Westoby, D. D. Ackerly, Z. Baruch, F. Bongers, J. Cavender-Bares, T. Chapin, J. H. Cornelissen, and M. Diemer. 2004. The worldwide leaf economics spectrum. Nature 428:821-827. As a condition for use of this dataset, users agree: (1) To notify the lead investigator (Camille L. Stagg, U.S. Geological Survey, staggc@usgs.gov) if the dataset is to be used in any publication; (2) To provide formal recognition that, at our discretion, may include co-authorship or acknowledgements on publications; (3) To recognize that we may be using these data for scientific analyses, papers or publications that are currently planned or in preparation, and that such activities have precedence over any that that you might wish to prepare. 4) Although these data have been processed successfully on a computer system at the U.S. Geological Survey, no warranty expressed or implied is made regarding the accuracy or utility of the data on any other system or for general or scientific purposes, nor shall the act of distribution constitute any such warranty. This disclaimer applies both to individual use of the data and aggregate use with other data. It is strongly recommended that these data are directly acquired from the U.S. Geological Survey server, and not indirectly through other sources which may have changed the data in some way. It is also strongly recommended that careful attention be paid to the contents of the metadata associated with this data.
