Support: South Carolina Sea Grant Consortium

Timeframe: 2001 - 2003

Project Overview:
The purpose of this project was to describe the current state of knowledge of the Satilla River estuarine system. This mesotidal estuary is in a relatively pristine state compared to most estuarine in the Southeastern United States and is a useful reference point against which the effects of development in other coastal areas within the region can be assessed.
