Evaluation of Marsh Creation and Restoration Projects and Their Potential for Lagre-Scale Application, Galveston-Trinity Bay System


This project involved conducting detailed field surveys to assess wetland restoration, enhancement, and creation projects. The surveys aimed to evaluate these projects based on various criteria, including their original design, objectives, physical features, geomorphology, hydrology, site stability, vegetation, success in meeting performance goals, and potential for large-scale application.

The field surveys yielded insightful comparisons of different design types, criteria, and site characteristics. Among the seven sites analyzed, two were primarily fill sites, two were fill and shape sites, two were scrape-down sites, and one featured a natural substrate with shore protection.
