Wetlands Lab Visits Sapelo Island

The IU Wetlands Laboratory visited Sapelo Island July 8-12 2019 where they sampled porewater and measured soil redox at the SALTEx research site to better understand how the marsh is recovering from long-term salt water additions. They also visited the PredEx site where they collected soils for nitrogen and carbon analysis and deployed tea bags to measure decomposition rates. Their involvement in the PredEx experiment will allow for a better understanding of how excluding large salt marsh predators influences sediment carbon cycling.
