Abstract

Our goal is to determine the CO2 balance of Everglades wetlands, while also evaluating the relative magnitudes of biotic and abiotic CO2 exchange processes in response to hydroperiod. This project includes two eddy covariance towers measuring CO2, water, and energy fluxes, one located in a short-hydroperiod wetland and the other in a long-hydroperiod wetland. Chamber and biogeochemical carbon flux measurements will also be made at the tower sites. As the project progresses, a process model will be used to estimate CO2 fluxes by macrophytes at the landscape level in short- and long-hydroperiod Everglades marshes.
