- Coastal Research Summaries:

The upcoming issue of Georgia Sound * includes a coastal research summary prepared by the GCRC. We have highlighted some recent work by Dr. Christopher Craft (a GCRC-affiliated scientist at Indiana University). His paper, Freshwater input structures soil properties, vertical accretion, and nutrient accumulation of Georgia and U.S. tidal marshes, appeared in Limnology and Oceanography earlier this year (volume 52, pp 1220-1230.) Keep an eye out for your issue of Georgia Sound or read it online (http://coastalgadnr.org/content/displaycontent.asp?txtDocument=278).

* We plan to summarize a recent peer-reviewed journal article in each issue of the Coastal Management Program newsletter.  If you have (or know of) a recent paper on coastal Georgia that might be of interest to managers, please let us know.
