Hydrology and Water Quality of Two First Order Forested Watersheds in Coastal South Carolina

  title={Hydrology and Water Quality of Two First Order Forested Watersheds in Coastal South Carolina},
  author={Devendra M. Amatya and masato. miwa and Carl C. Trettin and Ge Sun},
Abstract Two first-order forested watersheds (WS 80 and WS 77) on poorly drained pine-hardwood stands in the South Carolina Coastal Plain have been monitored since mid-1960s to characterize the hydrology, water quality and vegetation dynamics. This study examines the flow and nutrient dynamics of these two watersheds using 13 years (1 969-76 and 1977-81) of data prior to Hurricane Hugo (1 989) and nearly 10 years (1 990-1 992, 1996-99, and 2003-06) immediately after Hugo. WS 80 remained as a… CONTINUE READING
