Our Goal

The overall goal of the CFRAW project is to develop a set of validated tools that can be used as measures of reclamation success based on a conceptual model of carbon pathways and budgets to assess how the allocation of carbon among compartments changes as wetlands mature. We will use these tools to provide specific recommendations as to which reclamation materials and strategies can most effectively and economically promote development of a naturally functioning reclamation landscape.
