Walter I. Priest, III

Research Interests

My primary interests are in coastal resource management issues including: the evaluation of wetland mitigation/compensation projects, the cumulative impact of construction activity on estuarine resources and water quality, the classification and evaluation of tidal and non-tidal wetlands and the beneficial uses of dredged material.

Current research projects involve the restoration of tidal marshes invaded by Phragmites australis, construction of a tidal wetland designed to treat stormwater runoff, and the identification and evaluation of potential wetland restoration sites on the Elizabeth River.
