Project Title: Greenhouse Gas Measurement at Sage Lot

Date: 5/2018-12/2018

Principal Investigator(s): Dr. Jim Tang, Dr. Faming Wang

Affiliations: MBL

Summary: In this study, we continued the field gas flux measurements at Sage lot salt marsh. We installed 4-inch diameter collars for soil respiration measurement, and big collar (20 inch) for the ecosystem level measurements. We installed warming chambers to heat the marsh to mimic the warming effect and measure the response of greenhouse gas fluxes to warming.  The aim of this study is to measure CO2 and CH4 fluxes in the pristine salt marsh, and support our project to study New England Salt marsh blue carbon.
