Science Saturday: Hydrology and Mountain Bogs
Hydrology and Mountain Bogs
Dr. Jeff Wilcox, UNC Asheville
Mountain wetlands in Western North Carolina are home to several endangered and threatened species. This presentation will discuss the role of precipitation, surface water, and groundwater in supporting these unique ecosystems.
Science Saturdays is a series of lectures and demonstrations that are held on the first Saturday of each month in the SECU Daily Planet Theater at 11 am. The presentations mainly target middle- and high-school students, but everyone is welcome to attend.
Science Saturdays are held in partnership with the NC State University Biomedical Engineering Department and are funded through NC Space Grant.
