South Carolina’s Coastal Habitats and Regional Comparison
In order to better understand South Carolina’s coastal wetlands, it is very important to assess their availability and characteristics. In this study, South Carolina’s coastal wetlands are defined as National Wetland Inventory (NWI) wetlands within the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) Critical Area. The NWI database is a publicly available resource that provides detailed information on the abundance, characteristics, and distribution of wetlands in the United States.
