Dune Detective, Using Ecological Studies to Reconstruct Events Which Shaped a Barrier Island.
Godfrey, Paul J.; Hon, Will
This publication is designed for use as part of a curriculum series developed by the Regional Marine Science Project. Students in grades 11 and 12 are exposed to research methods through a series of field exercises guiding investigators in reconstructing the events which have shaped the natural communities of a barrier beach. Background information, field equipment, field assignments, procedures, results and discussion ideas are provided for six exercises: dune survey, washover--physical aspects, washover--ecological succession, maritime forest profile, salt marsh survey--mapping, and salt marsh survey--elevations. Numerous line drawings, diagrams, charts, and photos supplement the narrative material. This work was prepared under an ESEA Title III contract. (BL)
