A monitored watershed on a South Carolina barrier island was used to collect data regarding the relationship between surface water and groundwater.
Nielsen, P. 1999. Groundwater Dynamics and Salinity in Coastal Barriers. Journal of Coastal Research, 15:732-740.
Groundwater patterns were examined and modeled for coastal barrier islands with a width less than 1 kilometer. These islands exhibit dynamics which differ from typical scenarios.
Osgood, D.T. 2000. Subsurface Hydrology and nutrient export from barrier island marshes at different tidal ranges. Wetlands Ecology and Management, 8:133-146.
Young barrier island marshes were studied at two locations: Hog Island, Virginia, and Pritchards Island, South Carolina, for characteristics of hydrology and nutrient export using flux of water, ammonium and phosphate.
Park, A.D. 1986. Saltwater Encroachment Study at Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Proceedings of the Focus Conference on Southeastern Ground Water Issues. National Water Well Association, Dublin, OH. p. 450-461.
Several test wells were located on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina to determine how salt water intrusion may affect drinking water wells on the island. Test wells were nested with individual wells monitoring the upper and lower Floridan aquifer, the surficial aquifer and the Hawthorn formation. Studies include the evaluation of porosity and investigate inter-relationships between the various aquifers.

A model was created to evaluate hypothetical scenarios of increased and decreased pumping activity in and around Brunswick, Georgia. Increased withdrawal in areas near Brunswick, Georgia would result in a water-level decline in the city. A slight increase in
