Data associated with the article "Satellite-derived Trends in Inundation Frequency Reveal the Fate of Saltmarshes”
In the publication associated with this dataset we retrieve inundation frequency change in different tidal basins over 27 years using satellite data from the entire Landsat 5 TM dataset. The method to retrieve inundation frequency is applied in Google Earth Engine (GEE). We further retrieve habitat change from the same satellite dataset and investigate how changes in inundation frequency affect saltmarsh development. In this dataset we provide time series of mean inundation frequency over the respective tidal basin; time series of habitat change; the GEE scripts which generate those time series; a pixelwise comparison of generated inundation frequency with another published inundation frequency and an elevation dataset of the same basin, as well as the GEE scripts generating this pixelwise comparison; generated maps of significant inundation frequency change between 1986 and 2010; and generated habitat classification (saltmarsh, tidal flats, water) maps from 1986 and 2010.
