| Image of Santee Experimental Forest (red line), overlain on the USGS 2006 Berkeley County, SC aerial photo, where multiple ecohydrologic studies have been conducted using long-term data from naturally drained freshwater forested wetland watersheds of varying scales (WS77, WS79, and WS80) located on South Carolina Atlantic Coastal Plain. Inset photo shows a typical forest stand on WS80.
||Snapshot : Shallow water tables respond rapidly to rainfall and evapotranspiration, making runoff in coastal forests highly variable. However, new SRS research on two very different forests found that they had similar runoff responses to extreme climatic events. Long-term monitoring is key to understanding how climate and vegetation management affect runoff.
