A team of scientist have been busy installing monitoring systems in the refuge as part of a three year project designed to gain
information on the carbon balance of the swamp. Specifically, it is to understand
how management and/or restoration could potentially increase carbon storage,
understand the key controlling processes of carbon sequestration, and estimate
effects of refuge hydrologic management on carbon sequestration, fire
management, and selected vegetation communities.
