Description:

Wrack cover and biomass protocols.

The export of macrophytes to beaches located near SBC-LTER reefs was estimated by measuring the composition, condition, cover and depth of macrophyte wrack on shore-normal transects over time. Biomass of wrack was estimated from volume for each species/type. Habitat available for deposition was estimated by measuring upper beach zone widths on each date.
