The main objectives are the study of the evolution of the forest from the pre-colonial period to the current training activities and the analysis of the interactions between anthropogenic activities, the forest, geomorphology and soils. The research will mainly focus on written and cartographic documents, historical photographs, and remote sensing data.
The second case study will focus on the role of South Carolina forests in the American Civil War, in particular, exploring how forests hindered / benefited the Unionist advance and Confederate defense.
