Abstract

This chapter synthesizes environmental monitoring and studies performed at Santee Experimental Forest (SEF) that are relevant to water quality within the lower coastal plain (LCP) of the southeastern United States. The SEF lies within the Carolina Flatwoods section of the LCP (Griffith et al. 2002) where forested wetlands strongly influence water quality through hydrological and biogeochemical processes and provide important ecosystem services.
