The ongoing Kirkwood-Cohansey Project represents a major initiative to determine the probable effects of groundwater diversions from the Kirkwood-Cohansey aquifer on stream flows, wetland-water levels, and aquatic and wetland communities.  Other research includes ongoing monitoring of water levels; water quality; and fish, frog and toad, and vegetation communities at sites throughout the Pinelands (Environmental Monitoring); a study to determine the effectiveness of upland-buffer zones in mitigating the impact of suburbanization on the integrity of wetland communities (Buffer Study); a study to characterize the geographic extent and magnitude of land-use impacts on intermittent pond habitats (Pond Study), and a study to compare the functional equivalency of natural ponds, excavated ponds, and stormwater basins (Created Wetlands Study).
