CEH has been involved in ecohydrological investigations at
Braunton Burrows in North Devon
- Carbon sequestration and biogeochemical cycling in a saltmarsh subject to coastal managed realignment (Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science)
- Eco-hydrological requirements of dune slack vegetation and the implications of climate change (Science of the Total Environment)
Another research paper published in Nature on 30 January, which was led by the Open University and featured CEH, looked at globally important tropical wetlands and carbon loss.
Wetland sites are great for nature spotting. Given our recent rainy weather, if you are out and about at a UK wetlands site over the weekend, try to stay dry! Any photos you might take are very welcome to be added to our Wetlands in the UK Flickr group.
