Conceptual diagram illustrating different monitoring activities implemented on Assateague Island to track changing habitats. Monitoring activities - which are habitat specific - include water quality, seagrass area, salt marsh nekton survey, surface elevation table, plover nests and fledgling success, upland elevation change, shoreline rate of change, and beach topography.
