NGS served as a subject matter expert on wetland resiliency at a regional workshop in Cape Charles, VA. The workshop brought together scientists who use Surface Elevation Table (SET) technology to monitor wetland elevation changes in sites throughout the Chesapeake Bay. More than 20 participants from Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware attended the workshop, which was co-hosted by the Virginia Coastal Reserve, the Chesapeake Bay Sentinel Site Cooperative, and Maryland Sea Grant. The aim was to compare datasets and trends within a similar framework of wetland resiliency to local sea level rise to better inform managers and decision makers on wetland sustainability or wetland loss in the region.
