Hi- Could you tell me the SLAMM definitions for these land types: Reg. Flooded marsh,
Irreg. Flooded Marsh and Tidal Fresh Marsh

I would direct your attention to Table 4 in the technical documentation that points out how these categories were derived from NWI classes.  You can then research additional information about the NWI or Cowardin classification system.  For example, the "P" modifier signifies "irregularly flooded" in the Cowardin classification.
