Preparations are in full swing

A hard-boiled group of RESIST team members went out to the marshes this month to collect salt marsh sods that will build the foundation for the salt marsh patches we will expose to hydrodynamic forces in the flume. Frost does not allow to plant them into the pallet boxes directly, but this step will be completed as soon as possible. Until then they will sit safe and sound all over the glass house.

Once in the pallet boxes, the vegetation will root into the boxes’ soil and expand laterally, providing us with a range of growth stages from freshly developed apical shoots to well established root/rhizome systems.
