Most of Iowa's wetlands have been drained, tiled, and cultivated. This project looked at how carbon sequestration has been affected and what might be done to help improve the situation. Researchers collected GPS coordinates of all the sites samples so that in the future someone can return to the sites and determine the amount of change in organic carbon or other properties that have occurred over time.
