Abstract: The purpose of this project was to evaluate and compare methodologies for using remotely sensed hyperspatial imagery from both Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) and next-generation satellite technology to calculate species composition and ecosystem service metrics in a coastal intermediate marsh. Such methods would be important steps towards comprehensive monitoring of wetland landscapes and would provide useful metrics to study wetland condition and response to ecosystem restoration and disturbance events.
