Wetland soils contain high stores of soil carbon in the biosphere. However, the quantity and distribution of carbon stored in wetlands are little known. Also there is little understanding of potential effects of human disturbance on these stocks. Here we tried to make foundation of understanding these stocks especially in terms of the vegetations which are related to the organic content of the sediment in wetland. We use aerial photographs with high resolution during 10 years and examine temporal and spatial patterns of halophytes and its spatiotemporal changes in the tidal channel and Sorae wetland park. The results would be valuable source to estimate carbon storage in Sorae wetland and its tidal channel.
