Research Project: Pedological Processes Linking Wetland Restoration Practices to Ecosystem Services

Location: Hydrology and Remote Sensing Laboratory

Project Number: 1245-13610-028-34
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jun 18, 2012
End Date: Dec 31, 2014

Objective:
The goal of the study is to quantify the effect of wetland restoration techniques on carbon storage and hydromorphology.

Approach:
Study sites will be selected throughout the MIAR to best characterize the effect of wetland restoration implementation practices on the provision of ecosystem services, including carbon sequestration. The cooperator will travel to each site to assess soil characteristics and retrieve soil samples. The cooperator will work with ARS and other participants to analyze the data within the context of ecosystem service delivery.
