Coweeta Basin History Map

The Coweeta LTER Research Program has evolved since 1980 from a site-based to a site and region-based project which examines the effects of disturbance and environmental gradients on biogeochemical cycling. By studying watershed ecosystem processes which regulate and respond to the biogeochemical cycling effects, we are able to unravel the impact humans have on varied environmental conditions and provide solid science to guide future land use planning.  However, much research continues within the Coweeta Basin. The history of watershed manipulation is presented here. Click on a watershed to view physical characteristics and summaries of treatments. You can also download Coweeta Basin maps here.
