Thin Layer placement of dredged material (DM) is one method employed by the Corps and natural resource agencies for nourishment of degraded marshes suffering impacts of sediment starvation and sea level rise. An EMRRP research team led by Elizabeth O. Murray, Research Ecologist in the Environmental Laboratory, has conducted lab and field studies into mechanisms of salt marsh degradation, corresponding methods for restoring and sustaining ecological function, and important geochemical processes associated with DM in these environments. The team recently released two videos related to these efforts; POC Dr. Christine M. VanZomeren.

Super RARG!

The Civil Works Environment, Flood Risk Management and Navigation business line Research Area Review Group (RARG) meetings were held together for the first time EVER this year. The meeting took place 03 Apr - 06 Apr, 2018, and was held in the ERDC Coastal and Hydraulic Laboratory's William R. Curtis Conference Facility, ERDC, Vicksburg, MS. The annual RARG meetings provide an opportunity for USACE representatives from R&D, HQ, Division and District offices to consider and discuss proposed R&D topics - Statements of Need or SONs - submitted by field USACE offices. The RARG sessions were combined this year in a Super RARG format in an effort to address the increasing need for collaboration and coordination across business lines, in developing truly integrated solutions to USACE mission challenges. Mr. James Dalton, Director of Civil Works, USACE, gave the keynote address.
