20 Years of Sedimentation-Erosion (SET) Monitoring

20 years in the marsh is a long time. The original SET's are falling apart so it time to replace them. Dontrece Smith, John Williams, Elise Diehl, and Loris Sutter spent time replacing the original (pipe) SET's with new (rod) SET's at sites 4 (Meridian) and 6 (Dean Creek). Hopefully they will last 20 more years, enough to take you into GCE XIII.
