Summary

Coastal wetlands store more carbon than most ecosystems globally. However, little is known about the mechanisms that control the loss of organic matter in coastal wetlands at the landscape scale, and how sea-level rise will impact this important ecological function.

Purpose

In this project we identified both internal and external controls on organic matter decomposition along a landscape-scale salinity gradient that incorporated changes in wetland type (fresh, oligohaline, mesohaline, and polyhaline marshes) and examined the implications of sea-level rise on carbon storage potential and energy transfer along a coastal wetland landscape.
