Description:

These proceedings contain the abstracts, manuscripts, and posters of presentations given at the Fifth Interagency Conference on Research in the Watersheds—Headwaters to estuaries: advances in watershed science and management, held at the Trident Technical College Conference Center in North Charleston, South Carolina, March 3-5, 2015. The conference was hosted by the USDA Forest Service, Southern Research Station, Center for Forested Wetlands Research.
The conference theme was selected to recognize the focus of many natural resource agencies and universities in understanding how ecosystems are connected from interior upland habitats to the estuaries, as land use in the upper portion of watersheds often affect hydrological, ecological, and sociological processes downstream. This theme builds on past ICRW programs held in Arizona, North Carolina, Colorado, and Alaska by delivering a strong southeastern coastal plain theme while maintaining a broad national focus that highlights ongoing interagency research and management initiatives.
The conference was structured to focus on key issues faced by managers and scientists throughout the US, with many of these issues having a strong coastal watershed focus. Thematic areas included managing forested wetlands and agricultural catchments, identifying research advances from experimental watersheds, tracking the fate of contaminants through landscapes, advancing restoration ecology of connected ecosystems, and understanding the role of climatic perturbations (e.g., drought, severe storms) on watersheds. In addition, the role that ecosystems play in water use and management was a focal point, including modeling and measuring evapotranspiration associated with land use change.

Keywords: Coastal plain, forest hydrology, land use, watershed science
