Data Sheet & Protocol Heading Banner

Storm Surge Protectors relies on citizen scientists to collect usable data for our Storm Surge Protectors project. In order to ensure all data is collected in a meaningful manner, please follow the Storm Surge Protectors Protocol. Once the assessment is complete, citizen scientists will fill out the Storm Surge Protectors online data sheet. If only conducting a Shoreline Snapshot, please fill out Sections 1 and 2 of the Storm Surge Protectors online data sheet.

Please only complete a Storm Surge Protectors Wetland Assessment after attending a Storm Surge Protectors workshop. Please refer to our In the Field GuideVegetation Field Guide and our Wildlife Field Guide to make your assessments.

SSP strongly recommends completing a wetland assessment with another person, to reduce risk associated with field assessments.
