    About This Project

    Due to sea-level rise, prolonged intrusion of seawater into freshwater ecosystems which can alter the soil carbon balance and soil structure of organic rich peat soils. Often this results in the collapse of peat converting wetlands to open water ecosystems. In this study, we will collect porewater and surface water samples from Everglades National Park and analyze these samples for physical and nutrient parameters to determine benthic metabolic shifts as a result of seawater intrusion.
