Digging into the soil of wetlands
Scientists at the U.S. Geological Survey Wetland and Aquatic Research Center (www.usgs.gov/warc) study important aspects of wetlands, such as the flow and quality of water, the chemistry of soil, and the plants and animals which call this ecosystem home. In this video, we explore the world beneath our feet by taking a close look at the anaerobic soils you’ll find in wetlands. What does anaerobic mean, you ask? Watch this video to find out!
