1. Jahncke, Raymond. MAPPING WETLANDS IN NOVA SCOTIA WITH MULTI-BEAM RADARSAT-2 POLARIMETRIC SAR, OPTICAL SATELLITE IMAGERY, AND ELEVATION DATA.

Degree: Master of Environmental Studies, School for Resource & Environmental Studies, 2016, Dalhousie University

Nova Scotia introduced a new wetland policy in 2011 which included a goal to have no net loss of wetlands. In order to meet this goal, the Nova Scotia government has committed to updating the provincial wetland inventory. The objective of this study will be to assess the accuracy of wetland mapping using remote sensing processes based on RADARSAT-2 polarimetric SAR images, optical imagery, and elevation data. RADARSAT-2 polarimetric SAR images were acquired between 2010 and 2013 over an area southwest of Halifax. Two sources of optical imagery (QuickBird and Landsat 8) and two sources of terrain information (lidar and the provincial government contours) were combined in various arrangements with the radar. A non-parametric supervised Random Forests classifier was applied to the different data combinations. An accuracy assessment showed that using RADARSAT-2 combined with either source of data improved the accuracy of wetland identification over the existing inventory.

2. Carrière-Garwood, Jessica. Seasonal variation and biological effects on mudflat erodibility in the Minas Basin, Bay of Fundy.

Degree: MS, Department of Oceanography, 2014, Dalhousie University

The goal of this study was to investigate the effects of intertidal mudflat biofilms on sediment erosion in the Minas Basin of the Bay of Fundy, Canada. From April through November 2012, sediment cores were collected biweekly and eroded using a Gust micro- cosm. Half of the cores were eroded without undergoing prior treatment, while the other half were treated with bleach prior to erosion to destroy biofilms. Size-specific sediment retention by biofilms was evaluated by comparing the disaggregated inorganic grain size (DIGS) distributions of sediment resuspended from untreated and treated cores, while seasonal variation in natural sediment erodibility was assessed by focusing on the mass eroded from untreated cores only. Results show that biofilms preferentially retained clays and very fine silts (< 10 μm), and that overall sediment erodibility decreased from spring to fall. Results also indicate that abundance of the infaunal amphipod Corophium volutator and rainfall increased sediment erodibility.
