Short summary
Hydrologic connectivity of geographically isolated wetlands is poorly understood. We develop a model to characterize both the subsurface and surface hydrologic connectivity of these wetlands within the Prairie Pothole Region of North America. We show they are not isolated but have surface and subsurface hydrologic connections that vary in time and distance traveled to reach the river. Distance from the river, which is used to protect wetlands, is not an effective proxy of connectivity.
