Elkhorn Slough, a small estuary in central California, receives nutrient inputs from agri- cultural and other non-point source runoff. To evaluate the effect of nutrient loading on ecosystem processes, rates of sediment oxygen consumption, benthic nutrient fluxes, pore water ammonium (NH4 + ), dissolved inorganic phosphate (DIP) and sulfide (S 2- ) concentrations were measured at 5 sites several times each year between 1998 and 1999. Two sites near the head of the slough receive direct runoff… CONTINUE READING
