Sapelo News

Peterson Lab (CCU) at Sapelo

The Peterson group from Coastal Carolina University is on Sapelo Island for the next month measuring groundwater inputs to the Duplin River and several creeks.  Austin Waldorf (left; Ph.D. student), Cotie Alsbrooks (right; undergraduate student), and Rick Peterson (not pictured) are measuring dissolved radon-222 concentrations as a tracer of groundwater discharges.  We are maintaining time-series monitoring sites as well as taking intermittent grab samples from the river and groundwater to compute radon budgets in these areas.
