Project: Research

Description

Our goal is to develop a predictive understanding of nitrogen dynamics for the upper reaches of the Parker River Estuary, MA, USA that simulates how losses (denitrification and burial) and exchanges of N between sub- and intertidal (freshwater marsh)sediments and the open water are altered with changing salinity.
