Description :
Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) data for the Savannah River Site (SRS) in the Upper Coastal Plain of South Carolina, combined with geological, archaeological, and ecological data place new constraints on the evolution of Carolina Bays. Extant SRS bay morphology formed mainly during the Holocene and did not involve migration of bays across the landscape. The results are interpreted to develop a model of bay evolution subsequent to the formation of the initial depression.
