Summary of Data Collection Campaign & Setup

This dataset contains data collected during mangrove-mudflat campaign in Guyana, as part of Uwe Best's PhD Thesis project. It is being made public both to act as supplementary data for publications and the PhD thesis of Uwe Best and in order for other researchers to use this data in their own work. There were a total of six deployments, each with varying durations, and spanned the period from November 22nd, 2019 to January 11th, 2020. Eight frames were installed along the main transect, consisting of scaffolding pipes and connectors.

All locations are described below:

- MB 1: relative dense forest in the back of the mangrove 23 m away from the edge of the toe of the concrete dyke (sea wall).

- MB 2: approximately 100 m from the toe of the seawall within the mangrove.

- MB 3: approximately 200 m from the toe of the seawall within the mangrove fringe.

- MB 4: the seaward edge of the mangrove fringe.

- MB 5, 6, 7, 8: the mudflat in front of the mangrove, 1620 m seaward.

Software Needed
The processing of this data requires the use of MATLAB and Microsoft Excel.


The fieldwork presented in this paper was conducted under the research permit “Mangrove- Mudflat Coastlines Impacted by Sea Level Rise (SLR)- Hydrodynamics and Sediment Dynamics, Chateau Margot Mangroves, Guyana’. It was funded jointly by the Mangrove Research of NAREI (Project #:2019-01) and the PhD Project, 107440 (IHE Delft – Deltares).
