Research Projects on North Carolina Wetlands
Scientists working for the North Carolina Division of Water Resources during the past 20 years have completed over 20 major research projects – gathering information about and benefiting North Carolina’s wetlands. Over 390 wetland sites have been studied, representing 17 different types of wetlands.
A wide range of parameters (e.g., water levels/hydrology, water chemistry, soil chemistry, plants, macroinvertebrates, amphibians, surrounding land use) have been measured depending on the research questions being addressed.
