Coastal watershed wetland of Lake Huron on Michigan’s Lower Peninsula is a region of environmental, biological, social and economical significance. But, this region is also facing numerous environmental challenges, including coastal erosion, and threats to coastal wetlands and wildlife habitat. In an attempt to provide scientific data to address these challenges, we are acquiring airborne Lidar data covering three counties in along Saginaw Bay on Lake Huron shoreline. The three counties covers an area of 3,578 square kilometers, and it includes substantial amount of coastal wetlands and state designated high risk coastal erosion areas.
