The Altamaha River at Altamaha Park is tidally influenced. While we were inspecting the water-quality probes yesterday, the tide was coming in. I noticed this raft of material and was unsure of what it was. By throwing a pebble into it, I was able to determine that it was rafts of sand. At low tide, large sand bars are exposed. Somehow, the rising water picked up sand and supported it in a large raft.
