The Water Center’s Daniel McLaughlin is a principal investigator for a collaborative National Science Foundation grant that will study the linkages between hydrological and carbon dynamics in forested wetlands. Researchers from Virginia Tech, University of Maryland, and University of Alabama will work with isolated wetlands in the Delmarva Peninsula of Maryland. The researchers will focus on the role Delmarva bays play in the export, storage, and emissions of carbon.
