Inundation by salt water from Hurricane “Audrey” strongly affected the salinity of most soils. Salt marsh range soils and permeable ridge soils were least affected. Fresh marsh soils and slowly permeable ridge soils were most affected. The storm-caused salinity decreased significantly for 14 months where the soils were not subject to salt water tides. Prestorm level of production of vegetation on areas studied was reached within two growing seasons.
