Area of Operations: Plum Island Estuary, Rowley, Massachusetts, United States, North America, North Atlantic
Dates: July 10, 2009 to July 17, 2009
Objectives: Quantify greenhouse gas fluxes from salt marsh sediment, including their responses to nutrient additions through field measurements and manipulations.
Type of Activity: Sampling
Information to be derived: Samples and Chemical Analysis
Summary: Gas flux chambers were placed on the salt marsh surface, and fluxes were measured of nitrous oxide, methane and carbon dioxide. Variability with space and time was examined, and influence of nitrogen availability of sunlight was examined.
