    Collection Overview: NCALM Seed Project. PI: Scott Starr, University of Alabama. The area of interest is defined by a quadrilateral polygon with an area of 39.5 km2 located 20 km west of Tuscaloosa, AL. The data were collected for predicting seasonal inundation dynamics and invertebrate community structure of an unregulated southeastern river floodplain.
