Sediment Storage and Drainage Ditch Excavation on the North Carolina Coastal Plain

Record #:
Eroding soil from eastern North Carolina into the coastal plain has been a major focus of recent geographical studies. This case study looks at drainage ditch excavations in Pitt County over a one year period. Analysis of soil accumulation in these ditches reveals the type of soil erosion from eastern North Carolina's agricultural lands and the extent to which these soils travel towards the coastal regions.
