More good news on the funding front! PhD student Anna Braswell has received support from NC Sea Grant to conduct a geospatial analysis of wetland distributions along the SE coast of the US. Anna's work is focused on understanding how land-ocean links, coastal morphology, and marsh vegetation feedbacks influence the broad-scale distribution of salt marshes, and this more regionally focused award will allow us to develop some additional data analysis approaches. As part of the award, the NC Chapter of Student Wetland Scientists will be organizing a symposium about the drivers of marsh resilience and the selection of sites for ecological restoration. Way to go Anna!
