Summary

The Mississippi Coastal Improvements Program (MsCIP) has developed a Comprehensive Barrier Island Restoration Plan containing options to ensure the integrity of the Mississippi barrier islands through restoration efforts. Any restoration activities implemented must have minimal adverse impacts to critical habitat for various marine, terrestrial and avian resources. Documenting the success of restoration activities in meeting this requirement requires habitat monitoring. In recent communications with MsCIP personnel, the MsCIP lacks a remotely sensed component to its habitat monitoring plan. Additionally, MsCIP personnel have expressed a need for data pertaining to critical habitat utilized by species of interest including piping plovers, [...]

Purpose

The goal of this analysis is to classify habitat types and change over time to document and understand the short- and long-term effects of restoration actions on barrier island habitats and assess whether the desired outcomes were met. The datasets created as a part of this effort will also offer a mechanism for data-driven decision support for planning and management.
