Abstract
Mapping of Coastal South Carolina at 1:24,000-scale and subsequent review of aerial photography produced conflicting interpretations of the marsh’s landward edge. Biologically the areas were identified as salt marsh in the photographs but geologically were composed of little to no modern estuarine sediments. The “fringe” unit was created for the purpose of mapping to address the potential conflict for what to assign the areas.
