Project Type: Research

DESCRIPTION: In this project we seek to quantify impacts of human-induced alterations in
wetland ecological characteristics and wetland-estuarine tidal exchanges on estuarine ecology,
specifically addressing estuarine water quality, organic matter cycling, plankton community
composition, and linking to development of hypoxic conditions, occurrence of bloom outbreaks
