Description

These data are sediment core data from the barrier islands and backbarrier lagoons, bays, and marshes of Brigantine Island (NJ, USA), Assateague Island (MD, USA), Cedar Island (VA, USA), and Parramore Island (VA, USA). Vibracore data from marshes and bays were collected using a vibracore system with the ability to core through a ‘moonhole’ on a flat bottom boat. Geoprobe cores were collected using a track-mounted 66DT Geoprobe direct-push drill rig. Select samples from the sediment cores (associated with Figure 9 of Shawler et al., 2020) were analyzed using a Beckman-Coulter Laser Diffraction Particle Size Analyzer (LS 13 320 Aqueous Liquid Module) with an applied calculation model that uses Fraunhöfer theory. Data are available as Microsoft Excel Workbooks and can be opened using Excel or numerous free and open sources products such as Google Sheets. Each spreadsheet contains a “READ ME” tab with additional detail.
