Two Talks Presented at Wetlands Meeting

James Miner presented results of research at the 30th Annual Meeting of the Society of Wetland Scientists, held in Madison, Wisconsin, June 22-26, 2009. He presented a comparison of wetland hydrology identified using the traditional 1987 Corps of Engineers Wetland Delineation Manual versus an update to that manual, which suggests that an expansion of wetland acreage is likely under normal precipitation conditions. At the same meeting, Geoffrey Pociask presented results of research of a study at a wetland in southern Illinois, finding that reducing conditions continued for a long duration after inundation due to tension saturation.
