Research Focus

Water quality of isolated wetlands in the Dougherty Plain of Georgia

 

Project Overview

My project aims to quantify physicochemical composition of water in a subset of minimally impacted isolated wetlands on the Dougherty Plain. Data collected for this project will provide an understanding of influence by undisturbed or nearly undisturbed wetlands on hydrologic processes in this physiographic province. This information is important to understanding biogeochemical role of isolated wetlands in the Dougherty Plain region. Methods from this study will also provide a research framework and working example that can be applied to understanding and managing physicochemical influence of isolated wetlands on nearby perennial features on the southeastern coastal plain.
