Project Title: Sediment nitrous oxide fluxes are dominated by uptake in a temperate estuary

Date: 2016

Principal Investigator(s): Foster, S.Q., & Fulweiler, R.W.

Summary: Coastal marine ecosystems are generally considered important sources of nitrous oxide (N2O), a powerful greenhouse gas and ozone depleting substance. To date most studies have focused on the environmental factors controlling N2O production although N2O uptake has been observed in a variety of coastal ecosystems. In this study, we examined sediment fluxes of N2O during 2 years (2012–2013) in a shallow temperate estuary (Waquoit Bay, MA, USA). Read full text…Frontiers in Marine Science, 3, 40.
