An emergy analysis of each state and an accounting of fisheries energy flow is conducted. Information collected relating to the pre-restoration (tidal mudflat) and post-restoration (emergent marsh) physical and biological conditions are detailed and analyzed. A determination of the emergy inputs for a large-scale marsh restoration project are calculated and as a final analysis, economic (emdollar) equivalents are developed to compare the yield of fisheries production supplied by mudflats vs. a restored and mature emergent freshwater tidal marsh. Through these studies support is given to valuing mudflats as important system components of Anacostia River.18.104.22.168 Methods 5.2.5 Energy Systems Diagram and Analysis Table First an energy systems diagram for the mudflat/open water and newly restored emergent marsh conditions at Kingman is developed to help conceptually organize theanbsp;...
