1. Constantin, Adam Jeffrey. Land-cover change and wetland plant zonation in Weeks Bay, AL.

Degree: 2015, University of Alabama

Changes in land-use/land-cover (LULC) and predicted changes in environmental conditions threaten the marginal occupancy of tidal marshes in Weeks Bay, Alabama. In a combined study, I investigated the implications of historic LULC and coastal wetland plant distributions on coastal wetland viability in the Weeks Bay area. The historically forested and agricultural landscape of Baldwin County is being rapidly converted by urban development, which puts increasing stress on downstream ecosystems. Further, simultaneous losses on the landward and seaward extent of the intertidal wetland transition may be contributing to coastal squeeze in this area. Within our study area, 17% of estuarine and marine emergent wetlands were lost to open water between 1956 and 2001, with over 30% converted to upland forested wetland (22.2%) and urban development (10.3%). There was also a near-complete loss (95.9%) of unconsolidated shore to open water. Within the coastal marsh transition of Weeks Bay, there was a heterogeneous micro-topography with a large overlap of plant distributions by elevation. However, salinity was found to be an indicator of plant zonation for the three dominant species: Spartina cynusuroides, Cladium jamaicense, and Juncus roemerianus. At intermediate salinity (3 – 9 psu), dominance alternated between Spartina cynosuroides in lower salinities and Juncus roemerianus in higher salinities. Because Cladium jamaicense is the least salt-tolerant of the three dominant wetland plants surveyed, changes in salinity due to altered upland hydrology and SLR may have the greatest effect on its distribution. Further, since the upland barrier of a wetland forest may prevent marsh transgression as sea levels rise, the ecotone between wetland forest and emergent marsh should be an area of specific interest for environmental managers. Factors that contribute to shoreline erosion or barriers to upslope migration will likely dictate the health and persistence of intertidal marsh habitat at Weeks Bay and will require special focus from local managers.

2. Kroon, M.E.N. Scoping study of `Coastal Squeeze' phenomenon, Ayeyarwady Delta, Myanmar:.

Degree: 2015, Delft University of Technology

Coastal squeeze is defined as the reduction in the space of coastal habitats to operate [1] and it is an important cause for (amongst others) coastline retreat, an increase in flood risk and salinity intrusion. Land use changes, such as deforestation and urbanization, reduce the space of natural habitats such as mangrove forests. This causes a deterioration of these habitats, which leads to a reduction of their natural protective and provisioning functions. Costs related to these function losses can be avoided by early recognition of coastal squeeze and early action against it. The coastal zone inMyanmar is subject to urbanization, extreme weather conditions (cyclones), increase in agri- and aquaculture and (illegal) felling of mangroves. TU Delft and partners are developing a research proposal in order to investigate the occurrence of coastal squeeze in Myanmar and to use this knowledge to develop a decision making tool that can operate within an integrated coastal zone management strategy. Our research is a scoping study to investigate how remote sensing analysis (using freely available Landsat imagery) can contribute to early recognition of coastal squeeze. This is applied on a case study of the lower Ayeyarwady delta in Myanmar, a crucial agricultural zone nicknamed the ‘Rice Bowl of Myanmar’. Analysis of Landsat imagery has been done to create a series of land use maps and determine coastline changes. This analysis has led to varying results. The use of recent Landsat imagery combined with data gathered by fieldwork has promising results to accurately calculate land use for large areas. Unfortunately this technique loses accuracy rapidly when applied to imagery from the past. Causes are the quality of the imagery (Landsat in general and the used techniques to obtain surface reflection images), the quality of the algorithm used for the classification and the quality and quantity of our ground truth data set. Extraction of the coastline for the past 30 years has been done with a reasonable accuracy of § 60 meters. Trends of coastline retrogradation and/or progradation along the coast of the delta have been identified and are presented in a map. Another output of this scoping study is an indicative map that identifies coastline types along the Ayeyarwady delta coastline. Advisors/Committee Members: Stive, M.J.F., Rutten, M.M..

3. Phan Khanh, L. Wave attenuation in coastal mangroves: Mangrove squeeze in the mekong delta.

Degree: 2019, Delft University of Technology

This study explores the influence of the wave characteristics on the attenuation process of waves through coastal mangroves, which are threatened by the coastal mangrove squeeze phenomenon. Coastal mangrove squeeze is the phenomenon where coastal regions, even when sediment availability is sufficient, are eroding due to a lack of accommodation space caused by the land use on the landside and by sea level rise on the waterside. Along the Mekong Delta Coast, only a narrow strip of mangroves of less than 140 m is left at the locations where a strong erosion of up to 100myr¡1 is observed. Furthermore, observations at the south eastern and the eastern coasts of the Mekong Delta are, that a mangrove width ranging from approximately 30m to260m and 140m on average, appears to be stable. Therefore, a hypothesis regarding coastal mangrove squeeze is proposed based on the empirical relationship between mangrove forest width and coastline evolution. The hypothesis is proposed, that a minimum space of coastal mangroves is required for a sustainable development of the mangrove forest...
