    Description

    Evaluating hydrology within coastal marine terrace features has always been problematic as watershed boundaries and stream detail are difficult to determine in low gradient terrain with dense bottomland forests. Various studies have improved hydrologic detail using USGS Topographic Contour Maps (Hansen 2001, Eidson and others 2005) or Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) in gullied piedmont terrain (James and others 2007), and the Maryland coastal plain (Lang and others 2012). Research within Turkey Creek subwatershed near Huger, SC used LIDAR and field verification to estimate the size of the 52.4 km2 subwatershed, but the 50-year history had estimates ranging from 32.4 to 72.6 km2 (Amatya and others 2013).
